Arab foreign ministers meet on Sunday to discuss whether to ask the UN to help their mission in Syria which has failed to end a 10-month crackdown on anti-government protests in which thousands have died. The proposal by Qatar is to invite UN technicians and human rights experts to help Arab monitors assess whether Syria is honouring a pledge to stop its crackdown, Arab League sources said.

A source said it might request that UN staff helping the mission be Arabs.
