Dozens of people have been killed in a suburb of Syria's battle-scarred city of Homs, reports say, in what activists are describing as a "new massacre".

Forty-four of those killed came from just a handful of families.

According to reports the latest concentration of killings by security forces happened in the Jobar district of Homs.

The group said 20 of the dead belonged to a single family, and 16 to another.

The reported killings come a day after the UN's humanitarian chief visited Homs, saying parts had been devastated.

It said the deaths were revenge killings; coming days after security forces retook Homs from rebels, having pounded the city for weeks.
