Red Cross Delivers Aid to Aleppo

The Red Cross delivered vital food and medical supplies to Aleppo on Thursday, the first time one of its aid convoys managed to enter Syria's second city since fighting intensified a few weeks ago, a spokesman told Reuters.

A convoy of trucks brought one month's food supplies for 12,500 people and wound-dressing material for up to 1,000 injured, depending on the severity of their wounds, the International Committee of the Red Cross said in a statement.
