World powers convening Friday in Tunisia are mapping out a plan to deliver humanitarian aid and give political legitimacy to the Syrian opposition, while details emerged that Arab nations have begun supplying arms to Syrian rebels, sources told CNN.
The diplomatic developments follow opposition claims that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces are now emulating elsewhere in the country the shelling attacks against the besieged city of Homs that have left hundreds dead.
More than 100 people were killed Thursday, including 14 children and a soldier who refused to open fire on civilians, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a loose network of opposition groups that documents government violence.
Diplomatic sources told CNN late Thursday that a number of Arab nations are supplying arms to the rebel Syrian army and militias.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, would not identify the countries.FULL STORY
