By Michelle Nichols and Suleiman Al-Khalidi UNITED NATIONS/AMMAN (Reuters) - The United States accused Russia of "barbarism" in Syria on Sunday as warplanes supporting Syrian government forces pounded Aleppo and Moscow said ending the civil war was almost "impossible". A diplomatic solution to the fighting looked unlikely as U.S. and Russian diplomats disagreed at a U.N. Security Council meeting called to discuss the violence, which has escalated since a ceasefire collapsed last week. Rebels, who are battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces for control of Aleppo, said any peace process would be futile unless the "scorched earth bombing" stopped immediately.
French President Francois Hollande said on a visit to the port of Calais Monday that the sprawling "Jungle" migrant camp would be "definitively dismantled" under a plan to relocate the migrants to centres around the country. Hollande, on his first visit to Calais as president, also called on British authorities to "play their part" in assisting the migrants, most of whom have their hearts set on reaching England. "I am determined to see the British authorities play their part in the humanitarian effort that France is undertaking" in Calais, Hollande said, flanked by security forces.
