U.N. to consider another draft resolution on Syria as shelling pounds Homs

After repeated failures by international leaders to stop the Syrian massacre, U.N. diplomats are expected to consider a draft resolution Monday that would "strongly condemn" human rights violations by Syrian authorities.

But for every moment of chatter, reports of bloodshed among civilians intensify.

At least one civilian was killed by sniper fire Monday in Hama, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights,an opposition activist group.

And shelling and gunfire erupted once again Monday in devastated city of Homs, tormenting residents who say President Bashar al-Assad's regime is set on eliminating the opposition.
