Reports: Syrian Army Tanks Withdraw From Homs as Observer Team Arrives

Weeks of violence in the city of Homs appear to have come to an end, at least for the time being, as the arrival of members of the Arab League monitoring team saw Syrian forces withdrawing tanks and armored vehicles from the city.
Opposition figures in the city were quick to condemn the pullback as insincere, suggesting that they believe that the move did not signal an actual end to violence against protesters. Major rallies were reported in Homs, pressing for Arab League action.

Complicating matters, a new statement from Human Rights Watch accused the Assad regime of deliberately hiding a number of its political detainees form the monitor teams, saying the “important” detainees were ferried out before monitors arrived.
