The Arab League has not discussed military action in Syria, its Secretary General Nabil el-Arabi has told the BBC.

"Maybe it is in our minds that someone would do that but we would like the Security Council to take charge," Mr el-Arabi said.

What they considered might happen "would be something of a limited scope", he told the BBC's Bethany Bell, in Cairo.
