Residents of Homs, Syria, try to reach out to rare visiting Arab League observers, to try to make clear the extent of civilians’ slaughter by President Bashar al-Assad.

 Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr:

“It shows a group of people from the Bab Amr neighbourhood having a conversation with what we believe are members of the Arab League observer mission. They seem very desperate, and they seem as if the Arab League observers are really their last hope. You hear the man telling them ‘come to my neighbourhood, come to my street. People here are dying; there are snipers on rooftops; we are not able to walk in the street.’ He repeatedly stresses the fact that ‘we are unarmed, we are unarmed civilians’. Now this is what the protesters want the Arab League to see, that they are not responsible for the violence but that they have been victims of the violence.”
