Terrified residents fled a new wave of air strikes on rebel-held areas of Syria's second city Aleppo on Saturday, as a "freeze" in fighting held on two other fronts. Aleppo was left out of the temporary US-Russian brokered truce, which appeared intact in the regime stronghold of Latakia as well as Damascus and the nearby rebel bastion of Eastern Ghouta. In Aleppo's rebel-held east, dozens of civilians left the battered district of Bustan al-Qasr early on Saturday morning, an AFP correspondent said.
By George Obulutsa NAIROBI (Reuters) - Rescue workers raced on Saturday to save more residents from the rubble of a six-storey building in Nairobi - including a mother and baby whose cries could be heard - after it collapsed overnight following heavy rain. President Uhuru Kenyatta visited the site of Friday night's disaster and ordered the arrest of the owners. "We are still hearing some voices from the collapsed building," Kenya National Disaster Operation Centre director Colonel Nathan Kigotho, told reporters at the scene.
