Syrian planes and helicopters have dropped barrel bombs on Islamic State-held areas in the north-east, killing some 40 people.

The barrel-bombs, crudely made drums of explosives, were dropped during Thursday and overnight, targeting al-Bab and Qabaseen near Aleppo.

Activists say the government has stepped up air raids in recent days.

Some 200,000 people have been killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad erupted in 2011.
