The toddler was completely buried in the rubble and the men dug with their hands to free the child.

Fighting continued in Syria as peace talks in Switzerland between the government and opposition delegations started on Saturday.

The delegations met briefly in the presence of international mediator Lakhdar Brahimi at the United Nations, their first session of talks aimed at launching political negotiations to end Syria's civil war.

The civil war between forces loyal to President Bashar Assad and mostly Sunni Muslim rebels fighting to topple him has killed more than 100,000 people since March 2011.
