At least 15 people, including children, have been killed in an air strike on a marketplace in a rebel-held part of the Syrian city of Aleppo, activists say.

Syria Civil Defence rescue workers said another 10 people might be trapped beneath the rubble in the Fardous area.

The strike was one of 25 in the rebel-held east on Wednesday that had left a total of 25 people dead, they added.

Government forces, backed by Russian warplanes, launched an all-out assault to take control of Aleppo last month.

A three-day lull in the aerial bombardment ended on Tuesday, when about 50 people were reportedly killed.
