In Syria, aid agencies unable to evacuate wounded from Homs


Two wounded Western journalists remain stranded in the Baba Amr district of Homs. Violence continues as the country prepares for a nationwide referendum on a new constitution.

Aid agencies were unable to evacuate any people Saturday from a battle-scarred neighborhood in the central Syrian city of Homs, one day after the United States and other nations demanded that President Bashar Assad allow humanitarian aid into strife-ridden Syria.
