Activists say the shelling of the Homs neighbourhood of Bab Amr continued on Friday. The area has become a stronghold of the armed opposition, and has been under bombardment for more than 10 days. The opposition describes the situation inside as dire, with shortages of food and medical supplies.

Shelling was also reported to target the neighbourhoods of Khaldiyeh, Bayada and Inshaat.
