CCTV footage obtained by British broadcaster channel 4 news, appears to show the impact of an air strike which hit a hospital in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

The al-quds hospital, in a rebel-held part of the divided city, was struck overnight on April 27-28 in an attack that was widely condemned internationally. The French charity Medecins sans Frontieres, which supported the hospital said last Friday that the death toll rose to at least 50 people, including six medics. The Cctv footage shows people walking through a hospital corridor before a strike hits. Three different camera shots show the impact of the air strike on the hospital.

 

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that he hoped to make progress in discussions in Geneva over the next two days toward renewing a cessation of hostilities agreement throughout Syria and resuming peace talks to end the fighting.

Kerry's hastily arranged visit to Geneva followed a call by the U.N. Envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, to the United States and Russia to salvage a two-month ceasefire in Syria after fierce fighting in the city of Aleppo. Moscow and Washington brokered the Feb. 27 ceasefire deal, which applied to western Syria but excluded al Qaeda and is fighters. World powers and the United Nations have been trying to salvage that truce. Judeh described the situation around Aleppo as "quite alarming" and said a cessation of hostilities was necessary for Syrian peace talks and humanitarian aid deliveries to resume. Kerry and Judeh said they would also discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Judeh said the absence of a "negotiating track" in that dispute was a challenge that threatened stability in the region and beyond.

 

US democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton has said America risked endangering its goal of diversity and inclusiveness, if republican front-runner Donald trump were to become president.

Speaking at a function in Detroit, Clinton said we cannot let Barack Obama's legacy fall into Donald trump's hands. "It was a tremendous honor to serve in President Obama's administration. Now America is deciding who will succeed him. The leading republican contender is the man who led the insidious Birther movement to discredit the president's citizenship. And when he was asked at a national television interview to disavow David duke and other white supremacists, who are supporting his campaign, he played coy. We cannot let Barack Obama's legacy fall into Donald Trump's hands." Clinton, a former U.S. Secretary of state, currently leads U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the race for the democratic nomination.
