UNITED NATIONS, Sept 30 (Reuters) - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced on Friday that he would establish an internal U.N. board of inquiry to investigate a deadly attack on a humanitarian aid convoy in Syria and urged all parties to fully cooperate.

"The Board of Inquiry will ascertain the facts of the incident and report to the Secretary-General upon the completion of its work. The Secretary-General will review the report and decide what further steps to take," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; editing by Diane Craft)
