Syrian activists: Troops shelling rebel-held Khaldiyeh neighborhood of Homs every 5 minutes
I guess Assad forgot the "cease" part of the cease fire.

Homs and Japan make me so sad. So much suffering.

Syrian activists: Troops shelling rebel-held Khaldiyeh neighborhood of Homs every 5 minutes

pdated at 7:15 a.m. ET

(AP) BEIRUT - Syrian troops shelled a rebel-held neighborhood and sent reinforcements to border areas as the opposition called for fresh protests Friday after the United Nations accused Syrian President Bashar Assad of failing to honor a peace plan that went into effect a week ago.

The latest violence came hours after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Thursday for the U.N. Security Council to adopt an arms embargo and other tough measures against Syria during a meeting in Paris of Western and Arab diplomats.

Earlier, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Syria was not honoring the cease-fire, which took effect last week, and that violence was escalating.
