Latest update : 2011-11-16

Pressure mounting on Syria: will Arab League ultimatum stop the bloodshed?

The Arab League is suspending Syria over its violence against civilians. In eight months, over 3,500 people have died at the hands of security forces. The regime of Bashar al-Assad looks friendless, isolated and even desperate - its final attempts at getting that suspension overturned have been soundly rejected.

  • Ayham KAMEL, Middle East analyst, Eurasia Group;
  • Majd AID, Syrian activist;
  • Marietje SCHAAKE, MEP, Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe;
  • Lucy FIELDER, France 24 correspondent in Beirut.
