Trump holds a rally with supporters in Council Bluffs, Iowa, U.S.By Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump escalated his attacks on a former beauty queen with a vague and unsubstantiated allegation about a sex tape in predawn Twitter posts on Friday that prompted Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to denounce him as "unhinged." Trump's refusal to drop his invective against Alicia Machado, the Miss Universe he criticized for gaining weight after she won the crown in 1996, threatened to damage his already weak standing among women and Hispanics. With less than six weeks to go until the Nov. 8 election, Trump made reference - without giving evidence - to a sex tape involving the Venezuelan-born Machado, who had publicly denounced him all week as a humiliating bully.

Syrian pro-government forces take part in an operation to take control of Aleppo's Suleiman al-Halabi neighbourhood, which is divided by the frontline that separates the rebel-held east and regime-held west of the northern city, on September 30, 2016Syrian regime forces advanced in the battleground city of Aleppo Friday, backed by a Russian air campaign that a monitor said has killed more than 3,800 civilians in the past year. The Doctors Without Borders (MSF) charity accused Syria's government and its ally Moscow of provoking a "bloodbath" in the city, saying the eastern rebel-held portion had become "a giant kill box". Syria's army was advancing on two Aleppo fronts, as talks between key players Washington and Moscow -- which back opposing sides in the war -- appeared close to collapse.
