The deadly siege of Homs lasted 27 days.

It ended Thursday with rebels in the Syrian city announcing a "tactical" retreat.

That essentially handed victory to the government, which bombarded rebel-held parts of Homs daily for much of the past month.

A prime target, the neighborhood of Baba Amr, is in ruins.

And the Syrian army says it's now in control there.

Anchor Lisa Mullins speaks with a Syrian opposition activist in Homs on the state of the city in the wake of the fighting.
