The Russian Defence Ministry says a truce in the Syrian city of Aleppo has been extended for three days to "prevent the situation from worsening".

The Syrian army announced a two-day truce on Wednesday, after two weeks of clashes left nearly 300 civilians dead.

The truce is part of international efforts to build on a wide-ranging ceasefire introduced in February.

Russia has been supporting its allies in the Syrian government with air strikes since September 2015.
