The warring parties in Syria and the international community have been urged by the UN Secretary-General to negotiate "a way out of hell" for the people of the war-torn country.

Over 300,000 Syrians have been killed and half the population uprooted during the more than five-year long civil conflict.

A cessation of hostilities which was agreed a week ago has all but broken down after a humanitarian convoy was bombed on Monday night.
