Syria troops 'kill 7' after peace agreement

NICOSIA (AFP) -- Syrian troops killed seven people in the flashpoint central city of Homs on Thursday a day after Damascus said yes to an Arab League plan to end the bloodshed, a human rights group said.

The seven were killed in the Baba Amr and al-Inshaat neighborhoods of the city where "heavy machine fire is still being heard," the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Under the hard-won deal announced at a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Wednesday evening, the Syrian government agreed to a complete halt to violence against civilians and to a withdrawal from cities like Homs where there have been major clashes.

"The Syrian delegation accepted the Arab League plan without reservations and in its entirety," a League official said.
