Aleppo: More than 100 children were killed in recent weeks

More than 100 children were among 338 people killed in Syria’s besieged eastern Aleppo in the last few weeks, the World Health Organisation has said.

The WHO said 106 children had died and a further 846 people injured in attacks that have included internationally condemned airstrikes on two trauma hospitals and bread queues and has seen incendiary and bunker-buster bombs used in an urban environment.

The situation in Aleppo was described on Wednesday as worse than a slaughterhouse by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who said the around-the-clock attacks on hospitals, clinics, ambulances and medical staff amounted to a “war against Syrian health workers”.
