Swedish mobile live video streaming site Bambuser has broadcasted footage showing shelling in Homs, thought to have been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad's government forces overnight Friday into Saturday morning.

Here is a still image taken from one of the amateur videos posted on the site two hours ago:

Bambuser has for the past year been in close contact with the opposition in Syria, which uses its service to broadcast images of the escalating deadly crackdown, which otherwise would not be seen due to the international media blackout. 

The site's videos can be viewed through live-streaming, which means no downloading is necessary.
