The UN says that up to 16,000 civilians have been displaced by the Syrian government's advance into besieged rebel-held areas of the city of Aleppo.

Humanitarian chief Stephen O'Brien said thousands more were likely to flee if the fighting continued to spread and intensify in the coming days.

He expressed concern about their fate, calling the situation deeply alarming.

Troops and militiamen have retaken more than a third of the rebel-held eastern half of Aleppo since the weekend.
