There are reports of intense fighting very close to the only road linking rebel-held areas of the Syrian city of Aleppo with the rest of the country.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said troops had advanced to within 1km of the Castello Road, within range of their light weapons.

Rebels said that meant no-one could now get into or out of the east of the city, home to up to 300,000 people.

The assault came hours after the government declared a 72-hour truce.
