A British doctor who has volunteered in hospitals in Syria for five weeks, says snipers are shooting pregnant women for a game.

Dr David Nott said snipers were shooting women and children deliberately.

"It's more horrific than any other war zone I've worked in. Most civilians are caught in crossfire, they are never really caught in direct fire. It is direct fire this time" he told BBC News.
