Parts of Homs 'starting to look like a city at war'

Syria has rejected a plan by the Arab League for a new government of national unity to end the months of violence.

The proposal, which would require President Assad to engage in proper dialogue with the opposition, has been dismissed by the regime as 'blatant interference'.

There were more deaths today in the city of Homs which has seen some of fiercest fighting.

The BBC's Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen was taken there by government officials.
