Syria crisis: Homs comes under heavy bombardment

Rebel-held areas of the central Syrian city of Homs are coming under intense bombardment from the Syrian army.

Anti-government activists report that 12 people have been killed so far on Tuesday and 100 injured. This cannot be independently confirmed.

Video footage appears to show tanks moving through the city as the BBC's Jim Muir reports from neighbouring Lebanon.
