Ban Ki-moon condemns ‘apparently deliberate’ Syria aid convoy attack
UN secretary general hails dead #aid workers as heroes and calls bombers ‘cowards’ in farewell address to general assembly
US defence officials now believe that Russian planes dropped the bombs that destroyed a UN aid convoy that killed at least 20 people, the Guardian has learned.
The claim of direct Russian involvement in the bombing, if confirmed, would have far-reaching consequences. #Ban Ki-moon has used his farewell address to the UN general assembly to denounce it as a “sickening, savage and apparently deliberate attack”, describing the bombers at “cowards”, and UN officials have said it is a potential war crime.
