Syria army shelling Homs and nearby villages, opposition says

After capturing Homs’ Baba Amr neighborhood, the Syrian army is attacking districts and villages where rebel fighters have fled, opposition activists say.

Emboldened by its takeover of a rebel-held neighborhood of Homs, the Syrian army shelled other parts of the city and nearby villages Sunday in an effort to regain control of the area, antigovernment activists said.
