DAMASCUS, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) — Protesters on Saturday sacked the Saudi embassy in the Syrian capital of Damascus after the Arab League (AL) decided to suspend the activities of Syrian delegation in the pan-Arab body, the al-Jazeera TV reported.
The TV footage showed angry protesters break into the embassy building in the evening, smashing the windows and sacking the embassy’s properties.
The suspension of Syrian activities will take effect on Wednesday, or Nov. 16, Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jasim al- Thani said in an official statement, after an emergency meeting of foreign ministers in the Egyptian capital of Cairo, where the AL headquarters is based.
Meanwhile, the AL statement called for its members to withdraw their ambassadors in Syria and urged sanctions on Damascus until a peace plan it brokered is implemented.
