The Arab League plans to call on the UN Security Council to protect Syrian civilians under Chapter 7 of the UN charter, acording to a draft statement seen by Reuters.
"The Arab League will assign its Arab representatives in the UN Security Council in the meeting set to take place May 5 to
ask the Security Council to protect Syrian civilians immediately in accordance with Chapter Seven of the Security Council
