At least 43 people have been killed and more than 170 people had been injured in a series of air strikes believed to have been carried out by Russian planes in the Syrian city of Idlib.

A marketplace, homes and official buildings were all hit. Bodies were still being pulled from the rubble.

Russia has not confirmed whether it carried out strikes in the area.

Russia began an air campaign to bolster President Bashar al-Assad in September.

It says it has targeted only "terrorists", above all jihadist militants from the Islamic State group, but activists say its strikes have mainly hit Western-backed rebel groups.
