Jul 9 - Video clips uploaded to the internet purport to show Syrian government forces firing at targets in Homs and Deraa provinces. Sarah Sheffer reports.
Violence rages in Syria. Amateur video said to be shot in Homs on Sunday purports to show Syrian government forces shelling the area. Another clip appears to show a Syrian tank firing from an elevated position allegedly near a residential area of Houla. Footage said to be shot in Deraa province claims to show a helicopter firing on Maraba. Reuters is unable to independently verify the content of these videos, which have all been obtained from a social media website. The violence comes as international mediator Kofi Annan holds talks with President Bashar al-Assad on Monday. Sarah Sheffer, Reuters
