Monitors In SyriaMonitors In Syria, Arab League peace monitors have started a tour of Homs, one of the epicenters of resistance to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

State television reported the monitors met the governor of Homs on December 27, a day after at least 34 people were killed in a military crackdown in the city.

The Arab League observers are tasked with determining whether the government is fulfilling a peace plan, including a withdrawal of troops from restive cities.

Meanwhile, activists say at least 20,000 protestors gathered in Homs on December 27.

The protest took place in the neighborhood of Khalidiya, where armed rebels have fought with security forces.

Syrian security forces reportedly fired tear gas at the protesters as they headed toward the center of Homs.

Residents of Homs said the Syrian army shelled the city overnight but withdrew its tanks and armored vehicles before the observers arrived.
