US to provide further $500m aid to Syria war victims

US Secretary of State John Kerry has announced that America will provide another $500m (£307m) in aid to victims of the war in Syria. The aid brings the total cost of assistance to nearly $3bn (£1.9bn) since 2011.

Mr Kerry made the announcement in Turkey, the latest stop of his Middle East tour, where he is trying to gain backing for US strategy against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.
