      Syria Again Promises Homs Ceasefire, Evacuation

      Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime has reportedly agreed to a ceasefire in the beleaguered city of Homs, allowing civilians out and humanitarian aid into the urban warzone. The promise follows unfulfilled talk to that effect from Sunday.

      "We welcome the reports that the parties have agreed a humanitarian pause to allow civilians out of and aid into old Homs city," remarked UN spokesman Farhan Haq in New York on Thursday.
