GENEVA - The Red Cross delivered vital food and medical supplies to Aleppo on Thursday, the first time one of its aid convoys managed to enter the besieged Syrian city since fighting intensified several weeks ago, a spokesman said.

A convoy of trucks brought one month's food supplies for 12,500 people and wound-dressing material for up to 1,000 injured, depending on the severity of their wounds, the International Committee of the Red Cross said in a statement."Despite the difficult security conditions, the convoy managed to get inside the city," ICRC spokesman Hicham Hassan told Reuters.
