Video from a social media website appears to show a blazing gas pipeline in the central Syrian province of Homs which witnesses said was the result of an explosion. Reuters cannot independently verify the contents of the footage. The video purportedly shows the blazing pipeline near the town of Rastan. It's the second reported blast involving an energy pipeline in the region in a week. Homs has been the focus of a crackdown on the pro-democracy movement by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. There have been reports of increased fighting there in the past few weeks.
