Fierce fighting between Syrian government troops and rebels is taking place in a strategic district of the biggest city, Aleppo.

State media said government forces had taken control of Salah al-Din, but the Free Syrian Army later announced a successful counter-attack.

Images that have emerged from the northern city show buildings reduced to rubble by heavy weapons.

Observers say controlling Aleppo is a crucial goal for both sides.
