An aid convoy to the besieged area of eastern Ghouta had to evacuate under heavy government shelling and airstrikes Monday in Syria, the International Committee for the Red Cross said. It was the first shipment of humanitarian aid to the war zone outside Damascus since fighting intensified there weeks ago. Thirty-seven of 46 trucks unloaded their supplies before having to leave, Red Cross spokeswoman Ingy Sedky said.
