Egyptians Hurl Stones at Syrian Delagation

About a hundred protesters camped outside the Arab League in Cairo hurled eggs at a delegation of Syrian opposition figures who arrived there for talks on Wednesday, accusing them of working covertly for President Bashar al Assad's government.

The four-member delegation was due to meet with Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby as the regional body gears up for an emergency meeting on Saturday to discuss the continued military crackdown on protesters in Syria.
