Syria conflict: Bombs rain down as truce hopes rise

Syria conflict: Bombs rain down as truce hopes rise
Air strikes on rebel-held areas of Syria reportedly killed at least 82 people hours after the US and Russia announced plans for a truce. An air strike on a market in Idlib killed at least 37 people while at least 45 died in strikes on Aleppo province, opposition activists say. A 10-day truce is meant to start on Monday, followed by co-ordinated air strikes against jihadist militants. Turkey and the EU welcomed the plan but warned that further action was needed. Turkey said aid must be delivered from the very start while EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini looked towards a "political transition". A spokeswoman for Syria's opposition said the plan provided some hope but more details were needed about how it would be enforced. In the capital, Damascus, the government endorsed the deal, the state news agency Sana reported. There has been no official reaction from Iran which, like Russia, is allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Image copyright AFP In other fighting: Image copyright AP
