At least 44 people have been killed and dozens hurt in Syrian government air strikes on markets in two rebel-held towns in Idlib province.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 37 died in Maarat al-Numan and another seven in nearby Kafranbel.

The monitoring group added that three children were among the victims and the death toll was expected to rise.

Escalating violence in the country in recent days has left a seven-week partial truce on the verge of collapse.
