Algerian observer, Anwar Malek, has quit the Arab League team of observers in Syria. He says he saw a humanitarian disaster in the country, adding the mission was proving ineffectual in ending civilians’ suffering.

He also criticized the mission’s leader, Sudanese General Mohammed al-Dabi, saying "the head of the mission wanted to steer a middle course in order not to anger the Syrian authorities or any other side."

Anti-government protesters carry the coffin of Muhammad Khaled Al-Kaheel,
who protesters say was killed in earlier clashes with government troops,
during his funeral in Qudsaya near Damascus January 9, 2012.
