German Chancellor urges Russia to end Syria war

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday appealed to Russia to end what she called the “atrocious” violence in Aleppo, Syria, saying Moscow had a lot of influence on the Syrian government.

Merkel said there was no basis in international law for the bombing of hospitals, and Moscow should help end the escalating violence in the war-torn country.
