Darfur: UN food convoy under attack

with 3 comments


With relentless attacks on truck convoys carrying much-needed food relief in Darfur, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said today that it might be forced to shut down its operations which feed over three million every month in the vast and impoverished region on Sudan’s western flank.

Yesterday, the agency recovered three hijacked trucks and four fleet staff after the latest attack in South Darfur, but nearly 70 trucks and 43 drives are still missing. Since the start of the year, over 100 vehicles carrying WFP food aid have been hijacked in Darfur, with many more shot at and robbed. Drivers are now refusing to travel on certain routes, leading to a marked slowdown in the delivery of food to those who need assistsance.

    Thanks! Very appreciated.
