In the Syrian city of Homs, thousands of people gathered in the streets to protest against the regime as Arab League monitors arrived there as part of a plan aimed at ending the crisis.
Residents of the area want to get the attention of the observers, as they say the government's violent crackdown on dissent continues.
So far, the head of the mission inside the country says the Syrian government has been co-operative. Observers will visit Homs again on Wednesday.
