Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Damascus for talks aimed at pressing President Bashar Assad to end a bloody crackdown on a popular revolt and carry out reforms.

Activists said the fresh assault on Homs came after 95 people were killed on Monday in the city of one million people, a hub of protest and armed opposition against Assad. More than 200 were reported killed there on Friday night.

Lavrov and Russian Foreign Intelligence Service chief Mikhail Fradkov arrived in Damascus to meet Assad, the foreign ministry in Moscow said, three days after a Russian-Chinese veto of an Arab-backed UN resolution on Syria caused outrage.
