Activists Accuse Pro-Syrian Forces of Killing Scores in Homs

Syrian activists say forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have killed more than 100 people in an attack on the central city of Homs.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday the attack happened Tuesday, with pro-government forces burning homes and shooting victims.  It said the 106 dead included women and children, and it urged the United Nations to investigate.

The Observatory gathers data from a network of activists, medics and lawyers on the ground in Syria.  Events in the country are difficult to confirm because the government severely restricts access for international journalists.

The Syrian conflict has killed at least 60,000 people since it began in March 2011.
