Corbyn calls for unity after winning Labour leadership vote
By Elizabeth Piper and Kylie MacLellan LIVERPOOL, England (Reuters) - Jeremy Corbyn was re-elected leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party on Saturday and called for unity after ending a "coup" by more centrist members of parliament who say his left-wing agenda can never deliver victory at the polls. The veteran campaigner's triumph, by 313,209 to 193,229 votes, over challenger Owen Smith cements his authority over the divided party and will fuel a drive further left - a move many members of parliament say will see them out of power and allow the ruling Conservatives free rein over Britain's divorce from the EU. Welcoming the result which handed him a larger share of the vote than his first leadership victory last year, Corbyn called on members of parliament and members at the party's annual conference in the northwestern city of Liverpool to come together to fight the Conservative Party and bring "real change" to Britain.

Factbox - Re-elected British opposition Labour leader Corbyn's key policy views
Veteran left-winger Jeremy Corbyn was re-elected leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party on Saturday after being challenged for the role by one of his lawmakers. Following are some of Corbyn's main policy views, many of which have fired up a new generation of left-wing activists: BREXIT Corbyn, who critics have accused of being a lacklustre campaigner for Britain's EU membership during this year's referendum campaign, has rejected calls for a second referendum and said the vote to leave must be respected. Corbyn has said falling back on World Trade Organization terms with the EU could risk significant job losses and would be damaging to Britain's public finances.

Residents in Syria's battleground city of Aleppo cowered indoors Saturday as fierce air strikes toppled buildings and killed at least 45 civilians, after diplomatic efforts to revive a ceasefire failed. Nearly two million civilians were left without water in the devastated northern city after regime bombardment damaged a pumping station and rebels shut down another in retaliation, the United Nations said. UN chief Ban Ki-moon said he was "appalled by the chilling military escalation" since the Syrian army on Thursday announced the launch of an offensive backed by Russian air raids to oust rebels from eastern Aleppo that has cost around 100 lives.
