The Syrian city of Homs is returning to life after rebel fighters gave up their battle with President Assad's forces which has left the city devastated.

The BBC's Lyse Doucet visited the city centre and found traffic gridlock as people return to find the wreckage of their former homes and begin the task of rebuilding and retrieving their possessions.
