CAIRO (AP) — Arab League officials say the 22-member organization's observers mission in Syria has been extended for an extra month.

Sunday's decision has been made by Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the media, say the number of observers will be increased and they will receive training by the U.N.
