• UN urges Russia to end bombing of Syria’s Aleppo


    BEIRUT: The United Nations urged Turkey Tuesday to open its borders to tens of thousands of Syrians who have overwhelmed nearby emergency camps and an end to bombings of their home province Aleppo. “The highest need and the best humanitarian response is for the bombing to stop,” UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien said, when asked if Russia should halt its air campaign in Aleppo. The main border crossing north of Syria’s second city Aleppo remained closed Tuesday, forcing huge crowds including women and children to sleep in tents or in the open.
