Aleppo: 'We have no food, we cook leaves off trees'

More than two million people are trapped inside the Syrian city of Aleppo - in desperate need of food and running water as intense fighting continues.

Rebel forces in the city helped by Islamist groups, claim they have the upper hand, and have rejected a UN call for a ceasefire.

The city is split between the rebel held east, and the regime controlled west.

Quentin Sommerville reports.
