Russia and China on Monday vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in the Syrian city of Aleppo to allow desperately needed aid into the war-ravaged zone.

The United States and Russia verbally dueled before the vote, which called for a seven-day truce. Venezuela also rejected the resolution.

The vote came as the Syrian regime continues to blitz Aleppo's east in support of its troops there, as part of an operation to seize control of the area held by rebels for more than four years.
