Key Homs area 'retaken' by Syria army

Syrian government forces have fully captured a district that was a key rebel stronghold in the central city of Homs, state media report.

The Sana news agency said the military had "restored security and stability to the neighbourhood of Khalidiya".

Activists reported clashes in Khalidiya on Monday morning, but said that most of the area was under army control.

Amateur videos, which the BBC has not been able to fully authenticate, appear to show clashes in the city.
