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.
