WFP Director Discusses Links Between Food Security, Migrant Crises In AP Interview

Associated Press: AP Interview: U.N. food agency boss warns of migrant crisis
“…David Beasley, executive director of the World Food Programme, said many of the militants who fled Syria amid the collapse of the Islamic State group’s self-described caliphate had ended up in the greater Sahel region, a belt of semi-arid land spanning east-west across Africa and home to 500 million people. … He said he has warned European leaders that they could face a far larger migrant crisis from the Sahel than the Syrian conflict generated if they do not help provide the region with food and stability…” (McGuirk, 3/26).
