Syria 'truce' for Red Cross to evacuate Homs civilians


The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says the Syrian government and rebel fighters have agreed a temporary truce to allow civilians to be evacuated from the city of Homs.

The ICRC said its teams - with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent - were ready to enter the worst-hit parts of Homs.

However aid workers have been unable to enter.
