The Syrian rebel force fighting government troops in the besieged city of Homs says most of its fighters have left the Baba Amr district in a "tactical" withdrawal.

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) said it was pulling out of Baba Amr, which has been heavily shelled for nearly a month.

Syrian government forces say they now have full control of the district.
