Monitoring group: 12 dead in airstrike on convoy

Posted:

BEIRUT (AP) -- A Syrian activist monitoring group says that 12 aid workers and truck drivers were killed when their humanitarian aid convoy was hit by airstrikes in Aleppo province. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists inside the country, reported the casualty figures on Monday. The report could not be independently verified.

Jan Egeland, humanitarian aid coordinator in the office of the UN envoy for Syria, told The Associated Press in a text message that the Syrian Red Crescent convoy carrying U.N. supplies had been "bombarded."

Egeland added, "It is outrageous that it was hit while offloading at warehouses."
