CAIRO - An Arab monitor said on Wednesday he might quit a fraying Arab League team of observers in Syria because the mission was proving ineffectual in ending civilians' suffering there, exposing rifts in the Arab peace effort.

The comments come a day after Anwar Malek, an Algerian observer, told Al Jazeera he had quit Syria because the peace mission was a "farce".

Malek's departure was a blow to the mission, already criticised by Syria's opposition as a toothless body that only served to buy President Bashar Assad time.

Its work has already been hampered by an attack on monitors in the western port of Latakia this week that lightly wounded 11 and prompted the League to delay sending new observers to Syria to join about 165 already there.
