UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today announced he is setting up a board of inquiry to investigate the bombing of an aid convoy in Syria last week that killed 18 people.

The internal UN panel “will ascertain the facts of the incident” on September 19 and report to Ban, who will “decide what further steps to take,” said a UN statement.
