Arab League Approves Tough Economic Sanctions Against Syria

The Arab League approved far-reaching economic sanctions against Syria on Sunday, according to news reports. 

The sanctions were believed to include, The New York Times reported, "the suspension of commercial flights to Syria from Arab countries, a travel ban on officials and politicians, a halt to all dealings with the Syrian central bank and the cessation of all Arab projects in Syria."

 

The sanctions come after months of violent unrest in Syria and are accompanied by sanctions from the EU and the United States, the Times reported.
