The ancient Syrian city of Homs was one of the first parts of the country to rise up against the Assad regime. Now, it's very difficult for western reporters to visit the city. We take a rare glimpse inside the city, from spring 2013, when the fighting was already fierce. (This story originally aired on Morning Edition on June 3, 2013.)
