Tens of thousands of Syrians demonstrated in the capital Monday against the Arab League decision to impose crippling sanctions on President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, an AFP correspondent reported.

Protesters waved Syrian flags and carried giant portraits of the embattled leader as they belted nationalistic songs in Damascus’ central Sabaa Bahrat square.

“The people want Bashar al-Assad… We are your people Bashar,” chanted the protesters.

Syrian state television broadcast footage of the pro-regime rallies and slammed the Arab League describing it as an “instrument for implementing the Western and American plan against Syria.”
