An aid convoy bringing supplies into the besieged district of the central Syrian city of Homs became trapped for several hours after coming under fire.

The Syrian Red Crescent said it had been "a challenge" to get its staff and the UN team out of the area.

Reports indicate that the convoy came under attack from mortars and gunfire as it was leaving.

The firing came on the second day of a three-day ceasefire to allow aid in to the old city quarter.
