Officials of the International Red Cross have arrived in the Baba Amr area of the city of Homs, known to be the worst-damaged during the recent clashes between the Syrian government troops and armed opposition units.
Access to the area has been closed by the authorities for security considerations. The Red Cross humanitarian convoy suspended the evacuation of the wounded from the city on February 26th, when it failed to obtain security guarantees from the warring factions.
But on March 1st, the Syrian authorities, who had regained control over Homs, allowed the Red Cross to supply humanitarian aid to the city and evacuate the wounded. Antigovernment protests have been going on unabated in Syria for almost a year now.

We have experienced some technical difficulties. We are rebuilding our article content for the last five months, so these will gradually become available over the next few weeks, but unfortunately without their attached comments. Some of the links will be changed too, and for this we must apologize. The four and a half years of BAR content published on this site prior to April 2011 will continue to be available. We thank you for your patience, and the emails and phone calls we’ve received in the last few days.

Why are some of us still trying to “save” the Obama administration. When will it be time to save ourselves from endless war, climate change, joblessness and the other ravages of late predatory capitalism?
