The bloodshed in Syria has no end.



03/03/2012 - Homs ( Syria ) - Syria: Red Cross convoy denied access to Baba Amro. The International Committee of the Red Cross has told euronews that its aid convoy is still being denied access to the shattered Baba Amro district of Homs in Syria.
Seven trucks carrying food and other relief supplies, joined by Red Crescent ambulances to evacuate the sick and wounded, have been stalled in the city since Friday. "We are now negotiating with the Syrian authorities to see whether there is a possibility for us to enter the district together with our partners of the Syrian Red Crescent to enter the Baba Amro neigbourhood to be able to bring in humanitarian assistance to evacuate the wounded and the sick," said ICRC Deputy Spokesman Sebastien Carliez, speaking from Geneva. "The situation is worrying in the city of Homs, in the district of Baba Amro obviously, so we need to get in to see what the needs are and to be able to cater for the needs and to bring humanitarian assistance as soon as we can to the population there." Two French journalists smuggled out of Homs arrived back on home soil on Friday, one of whom suffered a serious leg injury in the bombardment of the city. President Nicolas Sarkozy said Syrian authorities would be called to account for what he called "their crimes."

Activists have reported mass executions after loyalist troops entered the former rebel stronghold. Mortar rounds and machine guns have been unleashed by President Assad's army on the adjacent residential neighbourhood of Jobar, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights. There are no reports of any casualties Rebels in the town of Idlib have reportedly engaged with Syrian security forces and launched an attack on a tank. The country's state news agency reported a suicide car bomber in Deera had killed two. Residents allege seven died and denied the attack was the work of a bomber.
