Russia blocked a British-drafted UN Security Council statement condemning the Syrian government attacks on the city of Aleppo.

It was the second time in a month that Russia objected to a western bid to slam President Bashar al-Assad's air assault against Syria's biggest city which has killed hundreds since December 15th.

Aid groups say that Scud missiles and barrels packed with explosives and shrapnel have been dropped on schools, markets and hospitals in Syria's biggest city. They say more than 700 people have been killed.
