Syrian security forces have shot dead several civilians in the city of Homs, eyewitnesses and activists say, according to the BBC. Intense gunfire was reported overnight in Homs, with one resident telling Reuters there were “troops and armoured vehicles in every neighbourhood”. The latest violence is part of a crackdown on the four-month-old anti-government uprising in the country.
