Syria's government has hit rebel-held areas in the northwestern city of Idlib after a bombing in the capital Damascus.

At least 25 people were killed, including 16 children, in the government raids.

Most were pulled from destroyed buildings by medics and helpers from the volunteer group White Helmets.

Rebel groups earlier boycotted negotiations in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana, alleging ceasefire violations by Russia and the Syrian government.
