US secretary of state John Kerry said on Saturday the Syrian regime’s “indiscriminate bombing” of Aleppo amounted to crimes against humanity and war crimes and called on its backers Russia to try to stop it.

“The indiscriminate bombing by the regime violates rules of law, or in many cases, crimes against humanity, and war crimes,” Kerry said after a meeting of Western powers and Syrian opposition representatives in Paris and he called for Russia to “do their utmost to bring it to a close”.
