Baba Amr Besieged

Section on the southwest portion of Homs that is beseiged by Syrian Army forces against it's own civilians.

Links below show video and photos of the carnage. Expect future imagery to show a pile of ruble and unrecognizalbe sections of the city.

There isn't a category in VG to best describe these events.
