Syrian forces bombard Homs

Syrian   forces were reported to have unleashed a barrage of mortars and artillery on   the battered city of Homs, with more than 260 people killed according to   opposition activists.

Amateur video said to have been filmed in Homs and posted online on Saturday   showed a fire ravage a house in the district, with gunfire heard ringing out   around the city.

Two opposition groups, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights   and the Local Coordination Committees, said the death toll in Homs was more   than 200 people and included women and children in mortar shelling that   began late on Friday.

More than half of the killings – about 140 – were reported in Khaldiyeh   district.

The Syrian government denied involvement in the violence, blaming “armed   gunmen”.
