Syrian rebel reinforcements arrive in Qusair

Dozens of fighters have arrived to reinforce rebel units battling to hold off a Syrian government and Hezbollah assault on the key town of Qusair.

Hadi, an activist inside the town, told BBC Radio 4's Newshour that he could not put a precise figure on the number of reinforcements for security reasons.

But he said they had been battling to free around 900 wounded people, including pregnant women, who were trapped by the violence.

He added there was no water or electricity in the town and people were, "waiting to die".
