AMMAN - Syrian government forces killed at least 12 people and wounded 100 on Tuesday when they unleashed a heavy artillery barrage on a rebel-held district of the city of Homs, activists said.

"The Free Syrian Army is not letting the army enter Baba Amro. It responded this morning by 130 mm artillery that hit the neighborhood at random," activist Nader al-Husseini told Reuters from the district.

"Several shells are falling each minute," he added.
