UN says it delivered no aid on day one of Syria truce
The United Nations did not deliver any aid to desperate Syrian civilians during the first full day of a fragile ceasefire because of security concerns, officials said on Tuesday.
UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura told reporters in Geneva that he had "no information about any UN trucks moving at this stage," demanding "assurances that the drivers and the convoy will be untouched."
Spokesman for the UN's humanitarian office (OCHA), Jens Laerke, separately confirmed that no UN convoys have deployed across a border or within Syria since the ceasefire call more than 24 hours ago. (AFP)
