The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Fighting between rival jihadist groups in eastern Syria killed 74 people despite a call from Al-Qaeda's chief for a ceasefire.

The clashes between Al-Qaeda's Syrian branch Al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have prompted 60,000 people to flee towns in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor province.

The Observatory said 69 fighters on both sides had been killed in the clashes on Monday, along with five civilians.

Al-Nusra seized the village of Al-Sabha, in the west of Deir Ezzor, which borders Iraq, with 11 of its fighters and 23 ISIL members killed there.
