Italy's Foreign Minister Emma Bonino said Monday that the international community had "largely failed" in getting humanitarian aid to Syria, despite having the necessary medicines, food and transport ready.The immediate focus is on the fate of an estimated three million people trapped in areas where there is fighting, or blockaded by government or rebel guns.However, UN trucks carrying enough food for more than 2,500 people trapped in the Old City of Homs have been prevented access by the Syrian government, which voiced fears the aid would fall into the hands of "armed and terrorist groups" in the city.
