Syria conflict: US ‘outraged’ over aid convoy attack

The US government has expressed “outrage” over an attack on an aid convoy near the Syrian city of Aleppo that, a war monitor says, left 12 dead.

The UN has confirmed that the convoy was hit near the town of Urm al-Kubra, without giving details. But activists say an air strike hit the trucks hours after the army declared a US-Russian brokered truce over.

Meanwhile, Washington says it will “reassess the future prospects for co-operation” with Moscow. “The destination of this convoy was known to the Syrian regime and the Russian Federation,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said.(BBC,2016)
