    Arab chief clears terrorism definition

    The head of the 22-nation League of Arab States has endorsed a definition of terrorism opposed by many Arab nations for inclusion in a long-stalled comprehensive UN treaty against terrorism.

    The proposed definition of any intentional maiming or killing of civilians as terrorism, regardless of cause, put forward by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, "could serve as the basis for consensus" in drafting the global pact, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said.

    "This is a definition we can agree on," he said on Monday during a visit to the UN headquarters.
