The UN humanitarian affairs chief has expressed deep concern for communities cut off in Syria by months of fighting between government and rebel forces.

Baroness Amos, who is in Syria, said she had spoken to the government about trying to get humanitarian access.

She said the situation in the country was getting worse by the day and she had heard horrific tales of suffering.

The uprising began in March 2011 and the UN says more than 100,000 people have died in the conflict.
