Some 20 people were killed in the attack on the U.N. and Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoy at Urem Al-Kubra near the northern city of Aleppo. The attack also destroyed 18 of 31 trucks, a warehouse and clinic. The United States blamed two Russian warplanes. The planes were in the skies above the area at the time of the incident. Moscow denies the allegation. According to them, the convoy caught fire.
