Arab ministers to meet this week on Syria - agency
CAIRO Nov 20 (Reuters) - Arab League foreign ministers will meet on Thursday to discuss Syria, which has failed to heed a deadline to halt a crackdown on protests against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported.
It quoted an official at the Cairo-based body saying the committee handling the Syrian file, which includes Egypt, Sudan, Algeria and Qatar, would meet a day earlier to prepare for the ministerial meeting.
