The Syrian government has proposed a ceasefire in the city of Aleppo, and an exchange of detainees with rebels, in a series of rare concessions.

Walid al-Moualem, the Syrian foreign minister, who is visiting Moscow, said he gave Russian officials a plan for a truce in Aleppo, Syria's biggest city, where government forces have been unable to overcome rebels over the past year.
