Rebels in Syria are reported to have made fresh gains as the battle for control of the country intensifies.

The rebels said they had seized the central town of Halfaya and stormed an army base near the southern city of Deraa, capturing a number of tanks.

There has also been fighting between rebels and a pro-government Palestinian group for control of two refugee camps in the south of the capital, Damascus.

Meanwhile, the prime minister has made a rare visit to Aleppo, in the north.
