UN looks into aid possibly diverted to Syrian military

The UN children’s agency says it is looking into reports that aid to Syrian civilians may have been diverted to Syria’s military. UNICEF is “extremely concerned at reports that some of its humanitarian supplies in Syria have not reached their intended destination,” the deputy spokesman for the UN secretary-general, Farhan Haq, told reporters Thursday. Syria’s main opposition group in exile, the Syrian National Coalition, issued a statement Thursday pointing out photos published by Syrian activists of what they say are aid parcels with UN logos at a Syrian army base that rebels overran this week.
