The United States commended Muslim states for suspending Syria's membership in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, saying it sent a "strong message" to President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

A statement issued at the end of an OIC summit meeting in the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia said participants had agreed on "the need to end immediately the acts of violence in Syria".

The final statement also expressed "deep concern at the massacres and inhuman acts suffered by the Syrian people".
