Syria unrest: Heavy bombardment in the City of Homs

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

The area of Baba Amr, which has been under siege for two weeks, endured several hundred shells over a period of one or two hours, says the BBC's Jim Muir, who is monitoring events from neighbouring Lebanon.
