    US 'outraged' over aid convoy attack in Syria

    Sept.20, Aleppo: The US government has expressed "outrage" over an attack on an aid convoy near the Syrian city of Aleppo that, a war monitor says, left 12 dead.

    The UN has confirmed that the convoy was hit near the town of Urm al-Kubra, without giving details. But activists say an air strike hit the trucks hours after the army declared a US-Russian brokered truce over.

    Meanwhile, Washington says it will "reassess the future prospects for co-operation" with Moscow.

    "The destination of this convoy was known to the Syrian regime and the Russian Federation," State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

    "And yet these aid workers were killed in their attempt to provide relief to the Syrian people," he added.
