A UN aid convoy delivering food was hit by air strikes which pounded opposition-held parts of Syria on Monday night, minutes after the military declared the end of a ceasefire. The strikes, carried out by either Syrian or allied Russian warplanes, hit Syrian Red Crescent trucks as staff members were unloading aid in Urem al-Kubra in Aleppo province.More than a dozen were killed including Omar Barakat, the organisation’s director. Pictures shared by activists showed burned bodies next to a UNHCR badge. "Our outrage at this attack is enormous ... the convoy was the outcome of a long process of permission and preparations to assist isolated civilians," Steffan de Mistura, the UN Syria envoy, said.
