    Russia 'may have committed war crime' in Syria: Johnson

    Sept.25, Aleppo: UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has suggested Russia may have committed a war crime in Syria if it was behind an attack on an aid convoy near Aleppo.

    He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that it was right to ask whether Russian forces had deliberately targeted civilians.

    Eighteen lorries and a warehouse were destroyed and 20 people killed in last Monday's attack.

    Russia denied responsibility, blaming rebel shelling or a US drone.

    The comments came as Aleppo sustained heavy bombing, with the Syrian government saying it had launched an offensive to retake rebel-held areas.

    In the latest fighting, rebel forces in the city were reported to have retaken the Palestinian refugee camp of Handarat, on elevated ground north of the city.

    The strategic area fell to government troops on Saturday.
