Heavy shelling in Homs as residents seek shelter where they can

Heavy shelling in Homs with no sign of relief after 27 months of war in Syria. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters, shows citizens taking cover where they can. President Bashar al-Assad's forces have pounded Sunni Muslim rebels in the city. Buildings stand in ruins -- abandoned and pockmarked by war. At least 100,000 people have already died in the conflict. And the shelling goes on. The offensive follows steady military gains by Assad's forces in villages in Homs province and towns close to the Lebanese border. The conflict has become part of everyday life as animals graze while the war rages on.
