Ambassador calls for independent monitors to oversee evacuations. U.S. Ambassador
to the United Nations Samantha Power says she is in favor of a French-drafted U.N. resolution calling for independent international monitors to oversee the evacuation of civilians and rebel fighters from war-torn Aleppo.
However, Russia’s U.N. ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, was not as quick to embrace the plan, saying “it takes weeks to deploy observers.”
Power said the Security Council could possibly vote this weekend.
