Live blog: Syria violence deadline


The social media war between pro and anti-regime activists is in full swing today, with both sides posting videos to portray their version of events inside Syria.

Below is an unconfirmed video which claims to show shelling in an urban area, said to be Khadaliya in Homs.

It claims to show attacks by the government today, but it is not clear where the shelling is coming from.

Pro-regime activists, on the other hand, have uploaded a video today claiming to debunk an earlier YouTube clip which said the Free Syrian Army had captured an army helicopter.
