'500 dead' in Syria regime's Aleppo assault

Tens of thousands of Syrians were still stranded at the Oncupinar border crossing to Turkey, which remained closed.

Beirut: A Russian-backed regime onslaught in northern Syria was reported on Wednesday to have killed more than 500 people this month, as Turkey faced new pressure to open its border to people fleeing the violence.

World powers urged Russia to end its air strikes, which a senior US official said were "directly enabling" the Islamic State group, and the UN Security Council met to discuss the conflict.

The meeting behind closed doors came ahead of crucial international talks Thursday in Munich to push for Syrian peace negotiations.
