    Violence is continuing in Syria, with activists reporting government assaults on the southern city of Deraa and Homs in the centre of the country.

    Activists in Homs said several neighbourhoods were under intense shelling for the third day in a row on Saturday. They said al-Khaldiyeh, Jouret al-Shayyah, al-Qusour and Old Homs were being bombarded with mortars and rockets.
