(MOSCOW)—The Russian deputy foreign minister says Russia is close to reaching a deal with the United States on a cease-fire for the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.
The Syrian government and its ally Russia have rejected previous calls for truce for the war-torn city, keeping up the military offensive that has squeezed and forced rebels to retreat in several areas.

The Queen of Pop and the British comedian make quite a pair in Wednesday night’s installment of Carpool Karaoke, running through a slew of Madonna’s greatest hits (with accompanying dance moves) and even getting into some salacious gossip.
People dancing on the second floor of the Oakland warehouse that burned down last week didn’t know a deadly fire was raging inside the building until it was too late, officials said. “There was rapid fire progression,” Jill Snyder, head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives field office in San Francisco, explained
