Arab League calls sanctions 'illegal'

The Arab League has called any sanctions on Syria 'illegal' because of an 'incomplete' probe. It comes on the same day that Russia said that it would do everything in its power - including using its Security Council veto - to block sanctions.

The Arab League pointed to Mehlis's own report, which said that the investigation is far from over.

And they supported Syria's statements yesterday which said that any Syrian found guilty of involvement in the Hariri murder will be tried in a Syrian or international court.
