Protesters confront Syrian opposition figures

Demonstrators confronted a Syrian opposition delegation outside Arab League headquarters in Cairo on Wednesday. Some protesters called the opposition figures “traitors” and pelted them with eggs, Voice of America said. Reporters say the protesters were apparently concerned the opposition figures would agree to a dialogue with Syrian authorities. The confrontation forced the four-member delegation to postpone its meeting with league officials until later in the day. They were to discuss Syria’s continuing crackdown on anti-government dissent.
