Government Forces Attack Homs
Worst bombardment in month
Syrian warplanes and artillery have pounded the central city of Homs, subjecting the former rebel stronghold to its worst bombardment in months.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday's attack is the worst the city has seen in five months. The Observatory, which relies on a network of activists on the ground, said tanks and mortars as well as aircraft had bombarded the city's Khaldiya neighbourhood.
