GENEVA (AP) - The U.S. has restarted deliveries of nonlethal aid to the Syrian opposition.

A month ago, al-Qaida-linked militants seized warehouses and prompted a sudden cutoff of Western supplies to the rebels.

U.S. officials say equipment such as communications gear and laptops are being funneled for now to non-armed opposition groups.

They say the decision was made after goods seized in December by Islamic militants were returned to the Free Syrian Army's Supreme Military Council.
