GENEVA, March 7 (Reuters) - A team of aid workers from the Syrian Arab Red Crescent entered the battered Homs district of Baba Amr on Wednesday, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said.

"A Syrian Arab Red Crescent team entered Baba Amr," ICRC spokesman Hicham Hassan told Reuters in Geneva.

There was no information on what food or medical aid the Red Crescent workers were able to take with them. The ICRC has been waiting for permission from Syrian authorities to enter Baba Amr since last Friday. (Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay; Editing by Louise Ireland)
