    Moves comes after European leaders threaten to impose tougher sanctions on Assad unless he ceases repression of his people; anti-Assad protests swell after Libyans capture, kill Muammar Gaddafi.

    Meet the Free Syrian Army

    Inspired by events in Libya, Syrian defectors organize for a fight.

    BORDER WITH SYRIA, Lebanon — Abu Ali is an unlikely freedom fighter.

    Dressed in the trademark leather jacket of the Syrian secret police, Abu Ali spent his early career as an enforcer of the state, a member of Syria’s Military Intelligence who wrote reports on friends, tortured confessions out of suspected opponents and answered directly to General Assef Shawkat, President Bashar al-Assad’s feared brother-in-law.

    But as night fell recently across a rocky plateau dividing northern Lebanon from Syria, Abu Ali gathered his men for the latest mission of the Free Syrian Army, a fledgling fighting force of defected soldiers and volunteers calling for international arms as they seek to replicate Libya’s rebels by bringing down the Assad family’s 41-year dictatorship by force...

    CAIRO, 12 NOV: The Arab League today suspended Syria until President Bashar al-Assad implements an Arab deal to end violence against protesters, and called for sanctions and transition talks with the opposition.
    A statement, read by Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassem Al-Thani, said the League decided “to suspend Syrian delegations' activities in Arab League meetings” if it continued to stall the Arab plan and to implement “economic and political sanctions against the Syrian government.”
    It also called for the withdrawal of Arab Ambassadors from Damascus, but left the decision to each Arab state.
    Sheikh Hamad said at a Press conference the decision would take effect on 16 November.
    The statement warned that Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi would contact international organisations concerned with human rights, “including the United Nations,” if the bloodshed continued. It called for a meeting in Cairo with Syrian opposition groups in three days to “agree a unified vision for the coming transitional period in Syria.”

    French oil giant Total said today no longer be paid by the Syrian government for its oil production in Syria, struck for two months by a European ban.

    "We are not paid anymore," said a spokesman for the group, confirming a report in the Financial Times, but without wanting to say how long the payments stopped.
