"(CNN) – Syria’s leading opposition movement warned Friday of an impending government “massacre” designed to crush activists in the city of Homs, which has emerged as a center of anti-regime unrest.

The Syrian National Council said military troops and vehicles had surrounded the western city and thousands of troops were manning more than 60 checkpoints just inside the city."
