Violence continues in Syria as Chinese envoy visits

Opposition activists in Syria say that security forces have resumed their bombardment of the country's third city, Homs.

They say 20 people were killed yesterday in various parts of the country.

A funeral in Damascus on Saturday turned into one of the biggest demonstrations yet seen in the city.

The protest took place as the Chinese deputy foreign minister held talks with President Bashar al-Assad.
