The head of a controversial Arab League observer mission to Syria has resigned, an Arab League official told AFP on Sunday.

The resignation of General Mohammed Ahmed Mustafa al-Dabi was due to be officially announced at a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo later in the day, the official said, without saying why the Sudanese former military intelligence officer had quit.

Arab League foreign ministers will meet in Cairo on Sunday to discuss the situation in Syria, where armed clashes between the security forces and the rebels show no sign of abating.

The ministers will, in particular, deal with a joint Arab-UN observer mission to replace the Arab League monitors who left Syria last month because of continuing violence there.

According to the UN, about 6,000 people have died in Syria since March 2011, in violence that official Damascus blames on armed groups supported by outside forces.
