    Syrian forces loyal to President Bashar al Assad have taken control of the town of Tel Kalakh, close to the Lebanese border.

    The recapture of Tel Kalakh marked another gain for Assad after the capture of the former rebel stronghold of Qusair this month.

    The US Secretary of State John Kerry has reiterated a diplomatic solution must be found to end the bloodshed in Syria.
