Red Cross holds talks with Syrians over wounded

An international Red Cross official says aid workers are in the Syrian city of Homs negotiating with authorities and rebels to evacuate all wounded including two foreign journalists.

International Committee of the Red Cross spokesman Hicham Hassan told The Associated Press his group and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent have been in Baba Amr, the neighborhood in Homs that has become the center of the Syrian revolt, since Friday afternoon.

French journalists Edith Bouvier and William Daniels have asked for help leaving the embattled city after Bouvier was wounded in shelling Wednesday that killed American-born veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin and French photographer Remi Ochlik.
