UAE: Syria not helping Arab observer mission

The UAE's foreign minister accused the Syrian regime on Tuesday of not facilitating the job of Arab League observers, lamenting the latest reported attacks on the envoys.

"The job of the observers is getting more difficult day after day ... We do not see a commitment from the Syrian side that would allow them" do their job, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahayan told reporters in Abu Dhabi.

"Sadly, there were attacks on observers, clearly not from the opposition side. This is not a positive indicator," he added.
