Syrian Troops Attack Homs

Rebel-controlled neighborhoods in Homs were hit with shells by Syrian troops Monday in what looks like an effort to oust fighters from the third-largest Syrian city. According to various sources, somewhere between 5 and 10 people were killed in the Homs attacks. The Muslim Brotherhood declared its commitment to creating a “modern” democracy in the event that President Bashar al-Assad is ousted. The ousted organization represents Syria’s Sunni majority.
