Arab League: Syria commits crimes against humanity


CAIRO (AP) -- The Arab League chief says the Syrian regime's killing of civilians amounts to crimes against humanity and is calling for an international inquiry.

Nabil Elaraby said Tuesday that it would not be ethical or moral to allow those behind the killings in the cities of Homs and Idlib to get away with their crime.

Syrian opposition activists have claimed that Syrian regime forces have killed scores of civilians, including women and children, in opposition strongholds over the past two days.
