Red Cross seeks daily ‘humanitarian pause’ in Syria fighting

Amid fear that Syria is headed toward civil war, the Red Cross proposes that both sides respect two-hour cease-fires to deliver aid and evacuate the wounded and sick.

Opposition activists reported scores of people killed Tuesday across Syria, including many in a new round of government shelling of the besieged city of Homs, as the International Committee of the Red Cross called for a “humanitarian pause” in order to aid Syria’s expanding ranks of victims.
