A United Nations and Syrian Red Crescent aid convoy was shelled and fired upon inside the besieged city of Homs yesterday, and one driver was injured, as the UN attempted to deliver food and medicine to 2,500 people and evacuate civilians trapped by months of fighting.
Nine vehicles were holed up in the city for several hours last night, until they managed to pull out around 10pm, leaving two damaged trucks, the Red Crescent said.
