Aid workers are expected to return to the besieged central Syrian city of Homs on Sunday, a government official said, a day after trucks carrying food and medical supplies came under fire. The attack wounded an aid worker and jeopardized a rare cease-fire in the nearly 3-year-old conflict hours before the resumption of peace talks in Geneva. Khaled Erksoussi, the head of operations at the Syrian Red Crescent told The Associated Press that the agency will try to evacuate more civilians from rebel-held areas in Homs in line with a U.N.-brokered agreement on a three-day truce to enable some people to leave and allow entry of food shipments.
