The UN has announced the resumption of aid to some 85,000 Syrian refugees stranded on Jordan's border - the first such deliveries in months.

The UN says the aid includes food, winter clothing and blankets as well as hygiene kits.

The refugees, mostly women and children, live in dire conditions in two makeshift camps in a desert area.

Jordan shut the border in June after seven of its soldiers died in a bombing claimed by Islamic State militants.
