Beirut - Syrian regime forces heavily shelled the rebel Khaldiyeh neighbourhood of the central city of Homs on Sunday, hours before the arrival of an advance team of UN military observers, monitors said.

"The bombardment of Khaldiyeh intensified this morning with an average of three shells a minute," the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman, told AFP.

He added that it was the fiercest shelling of Homs since a UN-backed ceasefire went into force at dawn on Thursday.
