We got in touch with activist Abu Emad, who is in Homs right now, for the latest on the situation in the besieged city. The Syrian military has been shelling certain parts of Homs for nine continuous days now. Some areas, such as Baba Amr, have been cut off from other neighborhoods.

Here is my conversation with Abu Emad when he called in live to the International Desk.

Good interview! I hope that the water, food, medical supplies and other survival items last them until they get humanitarian aid, hopefully soon.

I don't think Assad will let anybody from the west in until all dead bodies from summary executions have been cleared away.

HOMS interpreted acrostically means:
