Arab finance chiefs discuss regional unrest

Finance chiefs from around the Arab world are in Abu Dhabi for a special meeting on global economic turmoil and the upheavals in the Middle East.
Wednesday's gathering also could include talks on additional aid to Libya after the collapse of Moammar Gadhafi's regime and expanded efforts to pressure Syria's President Bashar Assad to halt violence against anti-government protesters.
The United Arab Emirates has been a leading Arab supporter of Libya's former rebels, who have envoys in Abu Dhabi.
Also on hand are international financial groups such as the World Bank.
The Arab finance ministers also plan to seek strategies to tackle unemployment and economic stagnation, which has fueled the Arab uprisings this year.
