UN council to vote on dueling resolutions on Aleppo truce

The two-week assault by Russia and the Syrian regime on Aleppo has sparked a global outcry after air strikes on hospitals and other civilian infrastructureThe UN Security Council will vote on two rival resolutions on Syria on Saturday, one drafted by France calling for an end to air raids on Aleppo and a second by Russia that makes no mention of a halt to the bombings. Russia is expected to use its veto to block the French-drafted measure backed by the United States and Britain that also provides for a halt to all military flights over Aleppo.
