French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on Saturday urged the UN Security Council to take immediate action to save the Syrian city of Aleppo from being destroyed by the Russia-backed Syrian bombing campaign.

The council "must demand immediate action in order to save Aleppo," Ayrault said ahead of a vote on a French-drafted resolution calling for an end to the air strikes.
