By Tom Miles GENEVA (Reuters) - Syria's government is refusing U.N. demands to deliver aid to 905,000 people including in Aleppo, the city at the center of an eruption of fighting in the past two weeks, U.N. humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland said on Wednesday. "We seem to be having new possible besieged areas on our watch, we are having hundreds of relief workers unable to move in Aleppo," he told reporters after chairing a weekly meeting of nations supporting the Syria peace process. "It is a disgrace to see that while the population of Aleppo is bleeding, their options to flee have never been more difficult than now." The first major ceasefire in Syria's five-year civil war, sponsored by the United States and Russia, was struck in February but has virtually collapsed in recent weeks, with Aleppo bearing the brunt of the renewed bloodshed.

"This leads us to think that ... someone wants to use the Americans to stop al-Nusra being targeted by strikes," Lavrov said. (Reporting by Jack Stubbs; Writing by Dmitry Solovyov)
