UN Aid Chief after Visit to Homs, Syria: A Day in Hell
The UN is hoping to resume the evacuation of civilians from Syria's besieged city of Homs, describing the situation there as "hell".
A day after the operation was suspended, UN local aid chief Yacoub El Hillo told the BBC it was "crucial" that it continued, describing his visit to Homs as like a "day in hell".
Hundreds of civilians remain trapped in the Old City - a hub of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.
More than 1,100 people have fled the city since Friday under a truce.
But the evacuation operation was delayed on Tuesday because of what UN and Syrian officials said were logistical reasons.
