A partial, shaky truce between Syria and non-jihadist rebels has been extended to the embattled city of Aleppo, after US and Russian pressure.

The US says there has already been a decrease in violence in the city, where dozens have died in clashes this week.

The Syrian military said it would abide by a 48-hour ceasefire starting from today.

The US and Russia brokered a nationwide cessation of hostilities in February but it has come under severe strain.
