Syria activist: 'Helicopter dropped bombs on aid convoy'

The UN has suspended aid deliveries in Syria after an attack on a humanitarian convoy killed about 20 people.

Media activist Zakaryah Junaid told BBC Arabic’s Nader Ibrahim a helicopter dropped barrel bombs on the convoy while it was being unloaded at a Syrian Arab Red Crescent warehouse in the rebel-held town of Urum al-Kubra.

A later attack by jets prevented rescue workers from the Syria Civil Defence, known as the “White Helmets”, from helping victims at the scene, he added.

The Syrian government and its ally Russia have said their aircraft were not involved.
