A man walks on the rubble of a destroyed building following reported air strikes by Syrian forces in the rebel-held Al-Shaar neighbourhood of Aleppo, on June 8, 2016Air raids have hit four makeshift hospitals in Syria's battered Aleppo city, doctors said Sunday, jeopardising medical care for more than 200,000 desperate civilians in rebel-held areas. The bombardment since Saturday has worsened the plight of residents of besieged eastern neighbourhoods of Syria's second city, where food and medical supplies are becoming increasingly scarce. The hospitals, as well as a blood bank that was hit, were located in the Al-Shaar neighbourhood, said the Independent Doctor's Association, a group of Syrian doctors that supports clinics in Aleppo.

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond walks to a meeting during the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors conference held in Chengdu in Southwestern China's Sichuan provinceBy William Schomberg CHENGDU, China (Reuters) - Britain's new finance minister Philip Hammond, under pressure from his peers from around the world, said on Sunday there could be more clarity later this year on how the country will exit the European Union. Several nations called on Britain during weekend talks on the world economy to explain how the politically fraught Brexit process will unfold in order to avoid adding a new drag on the long and slow recovery from the financial crisis. "It's a new factor affecting the global economic outlook and it has increased the uncertainty which the world economy faces." Britain was plunged into its biggest political crisis in decades by the June 23 Brexit vote and so far it has resisted calls from some other EU countries to trigger quickly the two-year process for negotiating its exit from the bloc.

Britain's Transport Secretary McLoughlin arrives to attend a cabinet meeting at Number 10 Downing Street in LondonBy Jemima Kelly LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's vote to leave the European Union must be binding, the chairman of Britain's ruling Conservative Party said on Sunday, and Article 50, which formally starts the exit process from the bloc, would be triggered before the next election. Patrick McLoughlin, who was made party chairman by new Prime Minister Theresa May last week, told the BBC's Marr Show that the vote for Brexit meant Britain must now get control of its own borders and that immigration must be reduced. Asked about a report in the Observer newspaper that an "emergency brake" on the free movement of people was being discussed, which would allow Britain to keep access to the European single market, McLoughlin said: "let us see." "I'm quite clear that the referendum result is binding on parliament," he said.
