A Syrian military offensive is continuing in opposition-held areas of the north-western province of Idlib.

Troops have been firing artillery, mortars and anti-aircraft guns at civilian areas in Binnish, west of the city of Idlib.

The city of Homs also continued to be hit, as France's president said a solution was in sight to rescue wounded Western journalists.

China meanwhile dismissed US criticism of its Syria policy as very arrogant.

A commentary in the Chinese Communist Party's official newspaper said that after the experience of Iraq, the US had no right to speak for the Arab people.
