Syria amateur video: Huge blast as troops shell Homs, protesters under fire

Syrian troops stormed a restive neighbourhood in the rebellious city of Homs, kicking in doors and making house-to-house arrests in an area that has spiralled out of government control for nearly a week. Amateur video showed a large explosion in Baba Amr, a major centre of resistance, purportedly a tank strike, and people were seen running for cover as automatic weapon fire could be heard. In some of the first pictures to emerge of the aftermath of the fighting, some homes had been allegedly shelled and rubbish was piling up on the streets as collections were suspended by the fighting.
