    Russia says US and UK speeches 'unacceptable'

    Sept.26, Moscow: Russia has criticised the US and UK for using "unacceptable" tone and rhetoric in speeches on Syria at the UN, after being accused of "barbarism".

    On Sunday, US permanent representative Samantha Power said Russian and Syrian government forces were laying waste to rebel-held areas of the city of Aleppo.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that such language might damage efforts to end the five-year civil war.

    Activists meanwhile reported dozens of fresh air strikes on Aleppo overnight.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least two civilians had been killed, while a rescue worker accused the Syrian and Russian air forces of using phosphorus, napalm and cluster bombs.

    At least 124 people are believed to have been killed in rebel-held eastern Aleppo since last week, when a truce brokered by the US and Russia collapsed and the Syrian military announced the start of an operation to take full control of the city.
