Syria blocks aid convoy from entering devastated Homs district

The Red Cross said a seven-vehicle convoy with medical assistance, food, water and other necessities reached Homs but was denied entry to the Baba Amr sector.

Syrian authorities blocked an aid convoy from entering the former rebel enclave of Baba Amr in the city of Homs, the Red Cross said Friday, as opposition activists alleged that security forces were carrying out revenge killings in the district.
