Refugees are fleeing the devastated Bab Amro district in Homs, as the Red Cross is blocked from bringing aid to those living there. The United Nations’ refugee agency says up to 2,000 Syrians have fled for Lebanon, and yesterday saw one of the biggest surges in refugee movement since the crackdown began. The siege of Bab Amro has gone on for almost a month. The Red Cross has been able to get aid to people fleeing Bab Amro, but Syrian forces have blocked aid workers from entering the besieged district itself. Activists say it is to prevent them from witnessing a massacre as Syrian forces hunt down the remaining rebels.
