AMMAN - Syria is calling for an emergency summit of Arab League heads of state to discuss unrest in the country, state television said on Sunday, a day after the League suspended Syria for its crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.

The Arab League called on its army to stop killing civilians in the surprise move on Saturday that turned up the heat on President Bashar Assad.

The League will impose economic and political sanctions on Assad's government and has appealed to member states to withdraw their ambassadors from Damascus, said Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani.
