Syria conflict: Footage shows aftermath in Damascus

There has been further heavy fighting in the Syrian capital, Damascus, and the northern city of Aleppo.

Activists said government forces had stormed Hajar al-Aswad, a southern suburb of Damascus, and that the situation for residents was desperate.

This footage, which cannot be independently verified, shows damage to buildings and a bomb crater, apparently in Hajar al-Aswad.

State media said troops had killed many of what they called "terrorists".
