Up to 20,000 Syrians were stranded on the Turkish border Friday after fleeing a major Russian-backed regime offensive near Aleppo where a new humanitarian disaster appeared to be unfolding. Tens of thousands of civilians have joined an exodus to escape fierce fighting involving government forces who severed the rebels' main supply route into Syria's second city.

By John Davison BEIRUT (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Syrians fled an intensifying Russian assault around Aleppo on Friday, and aid workers said they feared the major city could soon fall under a full government siege. Iran reported one of its generals had been killed on the front line, giving direct confirmation of the role Tehran is playing along with Moscow in what appears to be one of the most determined offensives in five years of civil war. The government assault around Aleppo, and advances in the south and northwest, helped to torpedo Geneva peace talks this week.

By Adrian Krajewski and William James WARSAW/COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron appeared to win support from Poland on Friday for a proposed deal to keep Britain in the European Union, though an opinion poll suggested voters may still reject membership by a resounding margin in a planned referendum. To secure a vote - expected in June - in favour of keeping Britain in the EU, Cameron says he needs a pact to curb benefits for EU migrants, an opt-out from moves to more closely integrate euro zone countries, more powers for national parliaments and a way to ensure Britain is not put at a disadvantage by being one of nine EU members outside the euro currency zone. Proposals to allow British authorities to delay paying benefits to foreign EU citizens working in Britain are under intense scrutiny, especially from Poland, the biggest source of Britain's migrant labour force.
