ESEKA, Cameroon (AP) — Authorities in Cameroon rushed more than 600 injured people to hospitals in the country's two main cities Saturday in an effort to save lives a day after an overcrowded train derailed, killing more than 70 people.
A ceasefire in the Syrian army's Russian-backed assault on rebel-held Aleppo appeared to expire Saturday with the UN saying it had been unable to evacuate anyone from the ravaged city. Moscow had extended the unilateral "humanitarian pause" into a third day until 1600 GMT on Saturday, but announced no further renewal of the truce despite a UN request for longer to evacuate wounded civilians. Neither residents nor rebels in the opposition-held part of the city heeded calls from Syria's army and Moscow to leave, after weeks of devastating bombardment and a three-month government siege.
