Red Cross active in Syria

Monday, February 27, 2012

The International Red Cross has brought relief supplies for 12 thousand people to the Syrian opposition stronghold of Hama. It says a similar operation for Homs is in the pipeline.

It also says it is seeking permission to evacuate wounded foreign reporters from Homs.

Hama and Homs have seen weeks of fighting between armed rebels and government troops. Five days ago, a shell fired by government forces killed two foreign reporters in Homs.
