Protests and shelling in Syria
Citizens on Monday night gathered for a nighttime protest in a village in the Syrian province of Homs. They say they have been bombed by an aircraft as part of President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown on unrest. Some of them also held signs calling for help. Villages in Homs province, along with Homs city itself have seen waves of assaults by Syrian government forces. This came even as the world leaders attacked Syria's referendum as the Constitution that could keep President Bashar al-Assad in power until 2018, was voted in.
