Syria regrets Arab monitor mission suspension

BEIRUT - Syria said it regretted and was surprised by an Arab League decision to halt its mission monitoring a peace plan in the country, official state television said on Saturday.
"Syria regrets and is surprised at the Arab decision to stop the work of its monitoring mission after it asked for a one- month extension of its work," Syria Television reported in an urgent news flash.
The Arab League on Saturday said it was suspending its mission due to deteriorating conditions and rising violence in Syria, which is grappling with a 10-month revolt against President Bashar Assad's rule.
