Aleppo MP denies reports of massacres

As the Syrian army closes in on the last remaining rebel fighters in Aleppo, the UN has said it has received detailed reports of massacres of unarmed civilians, allegedly by pro-government militias. Fares Shehabi, a member of Syria's parliament for Aleppo, said atrocities were only being committed by terrorist groups and the Syrian government was doing everything possible to protect civilians.
