EU Urges Russia, Syria to End Bombing Aleppo; Warns Hospital, School Strikes Are War Crimes

EU (European Union) foreign ministers today (October 17, 2016) urged Russia and Syria to end their bombing of rebel-controlled Aleppo, warning the attacks "may amount to war crimes," according to the Euro News website.

Meeting in Luxembourg, the 28 EU ministers hit out at the "clearly disproportionate" violence in the besieged Syrian city, pointing to the deliberate targeting of hospitals and schools.

But they made no decision on whether to slap sanctions on Moscow over its conduct in Syria.

Those decisions are only taken by heads of state and government.
