Rus­sia calls for hu­man­i­tar­ian pause

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Aleppo: Rus­sia has an­nounced plans for an eight-hour “hu­man­i­tar­ian” cease­fire in Aleppo later this week, amid a warn­ing from the Euro­pean Union that the Syr­ian govern­ment’s as­sault on the city could amount to war crimes. The United Na­tions and the EU wel­comed Tuesday’s an­nounce­ment by Rus­sia, but said the planned pause in fight­ing - set to take place on Thurs­day - needed to be longer to al­low the de­liv­ery of hu­man­i­tar­ian aid.
