Activists reported clashes and shelling across Syria on Tuesday, including heavy fighting between government forces and rebels in many suburbs outside the capital of Damascus.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bodies of six men were found in the southern neighbourhood of Tadamon, their hands were bound and there were signs of torture.

Battles and bombardment raged on in the country's economic hub Aleppo and nearby towns, local activists said.

Many homes had collapsed due to shelling, they said.
