Syria violence feeds fears of peace plan unraveling
Arab League warns of disaster
Violence erupted yesterday in the restive Syrian city of Homs, killing at least five people as tank shells slammed into an area that has turned into one of the main centers of both protest and reprisal during the seven-month uprising, activists said. Bloodshed linked to the military crackdown on dissent and what appear to be sectarian revenge killings have engulfed Homs in recent weeks, killing scores of people in the country’s third-largest city. The deaths are adding to fears that a peace plan brokered by the Arab League was unraveling.
