French diplomat: Arab League bid to condemn Syria has enough backers to go to UN vote
PARIS (AP) ' A French official says that the Arab League text of a new Security Council resolution on Syria has support from at least 10 members, meaning it can go up for a vote.
A text needs support from nine nations on the 15-member U.N. Security Council to go to a vote.
The Arab League wants the world body to pass a resolution condemning Syria for systematic violence against the country's population.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with departmental rules.
