UN aid chief in Syria: Baba Amr appears 'pretty devastated'

UNITED NATIONS - UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos, who is currently visiting Syria, described the Baba Amr district of the battered city of Homs as devastated by the recent shelling and almost devoid of people, a spokeswoman for Amos' office said on Wednesday.
"She (Amos) said that security was obviously an issue, and they heard gunfire while they were there," a spokeswoman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Amanda Pitt, said. "The parts of Baba Amr that they saw, she said they were pretty devastated."
