Red Cross convoy arrives in Homs

The Red Cross have finally arrived in the besieged Syrian city of Homs and say they are determined to go into the Baba Amr district.

Syrian Red Cross spokesperson, Salah Dabakeh, said: “They are set to deliver supplies to Baba Amr in order to provide urgent help and make it easier the eviction of injured people”.

The Syrian government announced yesterday that they have recovered total control of the Baba Amr area, clearing the area of violent opposition groups.

Both David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkoky have condemned the Syrian government and have closed their respective embassies in Damascus.
