[BERLIN] The leaders of France and Germany lashed out Thursday at Russian President Vladimir Putin over Moscow's bombardment of Syria's Aleppo, with French President Francois Hollande calling it a war crime.

"What is happening in Aleppo is a war crime, one of the first demands is that the bombardments by the regime and its (Russian) backers must end," said Mr Hollande after the meeting in Berlin, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the air raids as "inhumane and cruel".
