At least 10 people are reported to have been killed and dozens wounded in a series of air strikes on rebel-held areas in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

One of the strikes hit a makeshift hospital in the eastern Shaar district, activists and a monitoring group said.

Video footage, purportedly of the aftermath, showed bodies being pulled from a partially destroyed building.

It was not clear who was responsible, but government forces are seeking to regain control of the divided city.
