AMMAN - Heavy bombardment of the Syrian city of Homs resumed on Tuesday after at least 95 civilians were killed on Monday in an offensive to put down a popular revolt against President Bashar Assad's rule, activists and residents said.

"The bombardment is again concentrating on Bab Amro. A doctor tried to get in there this morning but I heard he was wounded," Mohammad al-Hassan, an activist in Homs, told Reuters by satellite phone.

"There is no electricity and all communications with the neighborhood has been cut," he added.
