BEIRUT - Syrian forces bombarded the city of Homs early on Monday, killing at least three people in a wave of attacks across several districts of the city, activists said.

"This is the most violent bombardment in recent days," said one activist in Syria who was in touch with Homs residents. Another activist said 10 people were killed.

Activists said more than 200 people were killed on Friday night when tanks and artillery blasted the Khalidiya neighborhood of Homs, a turbulent city that has become a heartland of resistance to President Bashar Assad's rule.

The latest assault appeared to be more widely targeted, with explosions in Khalidiya, Baba Amro, Bayada and Bab Dreib neighbourhoods, the activists said.
