'Death squads' on streets of Homs


Syrian troops and armed groups described by one resident as "death squads" have laid siege to the city of Homs since Monday night, sources said.

Syrian rights activist Rami Abdulrahman, director of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said that the city had been the scene of intense battles since security forces stepped up a crackdown on Monday night.

Homs has been a focal point of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad since the military stormed its districts two months ago to crush anti-government protests.

"Thirteen civilians were killed yesterday and today in several parts of Homs when the army opened fire as it carried out an operation in the city," he said.
