Most Syria rebels pull out of Baba Amro in Homs

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Most Syrian rebels pulled out of the besieged Baba Amro district of Homs on Thursday after more than three weeks of bombardment by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, activists in contact with the rebels said.

They said a few fighters had remained behind to try to cover the “tactical withdrawal” of their comrades.
