      UN Aid Official Heads to Syria


      United Nations humanitarian chief Valarie Amos is heading to Syria and Lebanon Tuesday for a three-day visit, Reuters reports. Amos will seek ways to increase emergency aid to civilians, UN spokespeople said.

      Many Syrians have fled to Lebanon and other neighboring countries to escape the bloodshed in their own country, where rebel forces are challenging President Bashar Assad’s regime.
