Syrians carry a body following a reported air strike by Syrian government forces in Aleppo on June 3, 2016Syria’s regime killed dozens of civilians with air strikes in and around Aleppo city on Friday, even as it agreed to allow access for ground convoys to deliver aid to 12 besieged areas. The raids on Aleppo were the most intense in more than a month, with dozens of barrel bombs — crude, unguided explosive devices — dropped on rebel-held eastern districts of the city, an AFP correspondent said. Fourteen people were killed when a bus they were travelling in was hit on the Castello road, a key rebel supply route out of Aleppo, the civil defence said.
