WARSAW - France said on Thursday that Russia and China must act within the United Nations Security Council to stop a possible bloodbath in the Syrian city of Aleppo, where reports say government forces are massing to put down a rebellion.

Asked during a visit to Warsaw if he had concerns about the situation in Aleppo, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said: "the countries of the world and in particular the permanent members (of the Security Council) should come together and take their responsibilities."

He singled out Russia and China, saying: "we hope that finally they will hear the cries, not only from the people in Syria, but from the rest of the world and the Arab countries, to stop this bloodbath."
