GENEVA —

The International Committee of the Red Cross has delivered aid to hundreds of civilians trapped for months in the Syrian city of Homs.

The aid group says it reached the neighborhoods of Khalidiya and Hamidiya in the old city of Homs on Saturday after negotiations with the government and rebels.

It said in a statement late Sunday that 34 foreign delegates and Syrian Arab Red Crescent officials were able to deliver medical aid to 100 wounded people.

The Geneva-based group says it also delivered medicine, food and hygiene items to "hundreds of civilians (who) have been unable to leave Khalidiya and Hamidiya for at least four months" because of fighting.

Homs has witnessed some of Syria's worst fighting since a popular uprising began in the country in March 2011.
