UN investigators probe Aleppo convoy attack

U.N. investigators say it has started collecting evidence on deadly attack on a U.N. convoy near Aleppo in September.

Investigators said if they are able to identify who carried it out, the issue should be brought to the Security Council, U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said on Friday.

We know that it is a difficult mission because it a mission where access is very difficult. We know manipulation of evidence can take place and evidence can disappear,” Eliasson told a news conference in Geneva. “An attack of this nature constitutes without any doubt a war crime.”

We hope to have enough information to have solid investigation presented as soon as possible,” he added.
