Ceasefire crumbles in Syria's west

A ceasefire between Syrian rebels and pro-government forces in two Shia villages near the Turkish border and a Sunni town near the border with Lebanon has crumbled.

The truce was called to allow food and medical supplies to be delivered to the rebel stronghold of Zabadani and to government-held Fuaa and Kafraya in the north-west.

The ceasefire had been agreed by the rebel group Ahrar al-Sham and Lebanon's Hezbollah movement, an ally of Syria's president.

Rami Ruhayem reports from neighbouring Lebanon.
