U.N. to stay in Syria’s Homs after resident plea | The Daily Star

DAMASCUS: Two U.N. observers set up base Sunday in Homs, their spokesman said, a day after video footage showed residents pleading with them to stay and ensure an end to bloodshed in the battered Syrian city.

The spokesman, Neeraj Singh, said other members of the eight-member advance U.N. team of observers mandated to monitor the April 12 ceasefire were pursuing field visits elsewhere in the strife-torn country.

“Yesterday (Saturday), the U.N. advance team visited Homs where they met with the local authorities and all the parties,” Singh told AFP.
