Beirut, Feb 28 : A Syrian activist group says 124 people have been killed across the country, including 64 who died while fleeing an embattled area in the central city of Homs.


The deaths were reported on Monday  by the Local Coordination Committees, one of the main Syrian activist groups. 

The group says 64 of those killed today were fleeing the area of Baba Amr, a rebel-held neighbourhood in Homs. 

Syrian government forces have been shelling the area for weeks.

The death tolls could not be independently verified.
