Men inspect a hole in the ground filled with water in a damaged site after airstrikes on the rebel held Tariq al-Bab neighbourhood of AleppoBy Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian government and rebel forces battled for control of high ground on the Aleppo outskirts on Saturday as warplanes bombed the city's opposition-held east relentlessly in a Russian-backed offensive that has left Washington's Syria policy in tatters. In their first major ground advance of the offensive, the army and its militia allies seized control of the Handarat Palestinian refugee camp, a few kilometres north of Aleppo, only for rebels to counterattack a few hours later. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the battle was ongoing.

A protester holds up a sign during a march through the streets to protest the police shooting of Keith Scott in Charlotte, North CarolinaBy Robert MacMillan and Mike Blake CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Reuters) - Charlotte police will release body camera and dashboard videos showing the fatal shooting of a black man that triggered protests in the North Carolina city, but the footage does not show the victim holding a gun, the head of the force said on Saturday. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney announced the release of the video at a briefing, following days of demonstrations at which protesters demanded that authorities allow the public to see clips of the Tuesday shooting. Putney said evidence showed that Keith Scott, who was killed on Tuesday, was holding a gun when he was shot by a police officer, but that the videos themselves were "insufficient" to prove that.

(AP Photo/Mark Gillispie)CLEVELAND (AP) — Two of the country's poorest cities are talking about a merger they say could help both. But Cleveland could need a sizeable boost in taxpayer dollars to absorb East Cleveland, a place so impoverished that some residents fill their own potholes.
