Arab League: 11 monitors lightly hurt in Syria attack
CAIRO (Reuters) - Eleven members of a team of Arab monitors were injured when their vehicles were attacked this week by protesters in the Syrian port city of Latakia but the incident has not disrupted operations, a senior Arab League official said on Tuesday.
"Eleven Arab League monitors among a group visiting Latakia (on Monday) were wounded when protesters attacked vehicles transporting the team. No side fired shots," the head of the League operations room in Cairo, Adnan al-Khodheir, told Reuters, adding that injuries were "very light" and no one was admitted to hospital.
"This incident did not affect the work of the monitors in Syria," he said.
