At least 11 people have been killed in a government barrel-bomb attack in the Syrian city of Aleppo, as regime forces try to dislodge rebels who hold large parts of the city.

The use of the crude munition - containers packed with high explosives often dropped from helicopters - has been widely condemned by human rights groups for the high number of civilian deaths that result.
