Egg pelting shows rifts in Syrian opposition
Groups divided over tactics in 8-month revolt
Syrian protesters pelted a group of rival opposition leaders with eggs yesterday outside Arab League headquarters in Cairo, accusing them of playing along with President Bashar Assad’s government instead of working to overthrow the regime. The attack highlights the growing fault lines in the Syrian opposition, which is struggling to overcome infighting in the face of a brutal government crackdown that has persisted even after Damascus agreed last week to an Arab League plan to stop the violence. Security forces killed at least 13 protesters nationwide yesterday, activists said.
