Last updated at 18:42

Leaders from around the world have met to talk about the problems in Syria.

They're trying to put pressure on the Syrian government to let help into areas where the fighting has been happening.

The city of Homs is one of the worst affected, many families there have been unable to leave their homes.

One charity, the International Red Cross, is asking for a two hour a day ceasefire so they can get food and aid to people living in Homs.

Around 70 nations, including the US, UK, France and Turkey, are attending the meeting in Tunisia.

But officials from Russia and China, two of the most powerful countries, have stayed away.

American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for other leaders to freeze Syrian assets and to close its embassies around the world.
