Arab League reports shooting and explosions in Syria

The head of the Arab League's monitoring mission in Syria has said his team has witnessed shooting and explosions while on the ground.

Mohammed al-Dabi said institutions and buildings had been targeted in attacks he described as "unacceptable to the Arab community and the regional community".

His comments came after Syria rejected an Arab League call for President Bashar al-Assad to hand over power to his deputy.
