Syrian army retakes Homs district from rebels
Assad's army gains come one month after it started an offensive in Homs as part of a drive to secure an axis linking Damascus to the Mediterranean.
Syrian authorities said on Monday the army had regained full control over a rebel-held district of Homs after weeks of fighting in the central city which has been at the heart of the two-year uprising against President Bashar Assad.
