A Syrian opposition group is meeting with the Arab League chief as new violence engulfs Syria's rebel central city of Homs where activists say the regime's crackdown has killed more than 100 people over the past week.

Syria agreed to a peace plan brokered by the Arab League last week. But officials say Damascus has since failed to abide by its commitments under the plan, including to pull tanks out of cities and stop the bloodshed.

Arab League officials say a delegation from the Syrian National Committee for Democratic Change was to meet the head of the 22-nation body, Nabil El-Araby, on Wednesday in Cairo. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

The talks come ahead of an emergency meeting by the League on Saturday.
