This image made from amateur video released by Shaam News Network and accessed Friday, June 8, 2012, purports to show explosions in the Khaldiyeh area of Homs, Syria. Syrian troops on Friday heavily shelled a rebel-held neighborhood in the flashpoint central city of Homs as President Bashar Assad's troops appeared to be readying to storm the area that has been out of government control for months and it was not clear if U.N. observers were able to enter an area where a massacre occurred this week, activists said.
