Homs Province are under watertight siege by anti-government rebels.

After 10 days of siege, the people have run out of supplies but cannot leave for fear of being machine-gunned.

Many analysts fear that the Syrian conflict may result in a bloody communal mess involving the governing Alawites, the majority Sunnis, the Christians and the Kurdish community.
