UNITED NATIONS United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday urged Russia and the United States to exert pressure on Syria's warring parties to stop fighting and ensure a credible investigation of air strikes that destroyed an Aleppo hospital.

"Instead of bombing civilian areas, all Syrian parties must renew their focus on a political process," Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.
