"Syria is ready to let Arab monitors extend their mission beyond this week, an Arab League source said, but President Barack Obama said he was looking to increase international pressure on Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to step aside. Damascus opposes broadening the scope of the Arab League observer mission, the source at the League said, but would accept a one-month extension of its mandate which expires on Thursday." (01/17/12)
