Syrian rebels shelled a rally in support of President Bashar Assad's re-election, killing 21 people, after his troops cut a key rebel supply route to the main northern city of Aleppo.Assad faces two little-known challengers in the June 3 vote the opposition and their Western backers have labelled a farce, and is widely expected to clinch a third seven-year term.On Thursday, the army broke a 13-month rebel siege on Aleppo prison, putting regime forces within reach of Castello Road, which rebels in Aleppo have relied on as a supply route to a rear base in the countryside.In that vein, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said humanitarian access throughout Syria was worsening, blaming the government in particular but also rebels.The report said more than 3.5 million Syrians still have "unpredictable and woefully inadequate" access to humanitarian aid.
