Around 200 people demonstrated outside 10 Downing Street on 13 December, calling on the UK government to do more to help the people of Aleppo, Syria. Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad say they have control of 98% of the city, and the Russian ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Vitaly Churkin said that military action in the area has ceased. Concern remains, however, for the tens of thousands still trapped in besieged areas of Aleppo, with the UN reporting that pro-government forces had been summarily killing civilians.
