Two killed in renewed shelling of Syrian city

A meeting in Tunisia is expected to bring together more than 70 nations to look at ways to assist Bashar Assad`s opponents.



Beirut: Activists say at least two people have been killed as Syrian troops resumed the shelling of a rebel-held district in the besieged city of Homs.

The activists say the two died shortly after government forces began shelling Baba Amr on Friday morning, after a relative calm overnight.

The Baba Amr neighbourhood on the city`s southeast corner has become the epicentre of the nearly yearlong uprising against President Bashar Assad. It`s been under siege and intense shelling for three weeks. Hundreds of civilians have died, according to activists.
As the violence continues, a meeting in Tunisia is expected to bring together more than 70 nations on Friday to look at ways to assist Assad`s opponents.
