Video: Syrian violence rages despite truce calls

Syrian government forces are said to be bombarding the city of Homs, ignoring calls from the International Committee of Red Cross for a two-hour daily truce to facilitate delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians trapped by the unremitting violence.

Activists say at least 12 people – including 2 children have been killed by artillery fire.

Local opposition groups say they have not been consulted, fearing a ceasefire will only give government troops time to organise more attacks.
