NBC News — Members of one of Syria's largest opposition groups met with the Secretary General of the Arab League in Cairo thursday. The group reportedly discussed the ongoing violence in Syria, despite the presence of a 100 member team of Arab League observers.
The group's leader asked the Arab League Secretary General to ask for cooperation from the U.N. Security Council to help stop the bloodshed. The United Nations estimates that more than five thousand people have been killed in the Syrian government's crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators.
