Carnage In Homs As Tanks Prowl Residential Areas

From The Telegraph:
Amateur video shot by anti-government Syrian activists seemed to show army tanks firing machine-guns and mortars into residential areas.

The video, posted on a social media website purportedly filmed in Homs show tanks firing facing on apartment blocks.

A third day of heavy gunfire in Syria's flashpoint city killed at least 20 people, the day before an Arab League monitoring mission is expected there, activists said.

The people of Homs are awaiting the arrival of the monitors, who are supposed to determine if President Assad is keeping his word by withdrawing the army from civilian areas.

President Assad's government said it is battling an insurgency by armed Islamist terrorists.

What began as peaceful protests nine months ago has become increasingly violent as army deserters and armed rebels begin to fight the crackdown and attack security forces.
