Feb. 8 - Opposition activists in Syria say dozens of civilians have been killed in Homs as the military offensive in the city advances. Simon Hanna reports.
Shells continue to rain down on the rebellious Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday. Opposition activists say dozens of civilians were killed in the latest onslaught. The day's total death toll from across the country was at least 67. The assault on Homs, one of the bloodiest of the 11 month revolt against President Bashar al-Assad, has not relented despite international diplomatic pressure. Activists say Syrian troops are advancing in the city and have moved closer to Baba Amro, the district hardest hit by a bombardment of rockets and mortars. These videos, which cannot be independently verified, also show tanks advancing in the neighbourhood. Simon Hanna, Reuters.
