    More than 70 people have been killed in the Syrian rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta, on the outskirts of Damascus.

    This is some of the heaviest fighting the area has seen in years as the Syrian government and Russian forces continue their intensive bombardment.

    It brings the total number of people killed since Sunday to 180.
