    UN says Aleppo civilians 'shot on the spot'

    Dec.13, Aleppo: Syrian pro-government forces have been entering homes in eastern Aleppo and killing those inside, including women and children, the UN says.

    The UN's human rights office said it had reliable evidence that in four areas 82 civilians were shot on the spot.

    A spokesman said it looked like there had been a "complete meltdown of humanity in Aleppo".

    Rebels, who have held east Aleppo for four years, are on the brink of defeat.

    Thousands of people are reportedly trapped in the last remaining neighbourhoods still in rebel hands, facing intense bombardment as pro-government troops advance.

    Both the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have appealed to Syria and its ally Russia to end the bombardment and allow civilians a safe passage out.
