Syria rebels take back strategic hospital in Aleppo

Rebels in the Syrian city of Aleppo have set off a massive lorry bomb to seize back a strategic hospital occupied by Assad loyalists.

A huge fireball engulfed the al-Kindi Hospital, and the blast brought down the central section of the disused building, in Friday's daylight attack.

Video footage uploaded to YouTube by a rebel group on Friday appears to show the lorry approaching the hospital followed by the blast.
