Homs witness: 'Pieces of bodies, children, women'

A British citizen of Syrian descent has described the escalating bombardment of the Syrian city of Homs.

Danny Abdul Dayem said he had been to a field hospital, and seen "bodies, pieces of bodies, children, women, men".

He said one field hospital had been hit by a rocket, killing everybody there and now there was no place to take the injured.

He said that people were dying because there was nowhere to take them, no doctors to treat them.

Danny Abdul Dayem was himself shot in Homs last year.

He was able to escape via Cairo back to the UK but he went back to Homs to take part in the uprising against the government.

He told the BBC that Syrian government forces were not allowing anyone or any medication to enter or leave the city anymore.
