    Nine people were reportedly killed Tuesday in Syria as opposition activists said government snipers were randomly shelling civilians in Homs. The opposition group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least six were killed by the shelling in Homs, and a separate opposition group, the London Observatory for Human Rights, said another two people were killed in Daraa and one in Damascus. “There is no place here in this city that is a safe house or shelter or a basement,” said one activist in Homs who asked to be identified only as Omar. Meanwhile, the state-run news agency said 13 “Army and law-enforcement martyrs” killed by “terrorist groups” were buried Tuesday.
