WFP Director Says Report On Rohingya Hunger Removed From Website To Be Republished

The Guardian: U.N. report on Rohingya hunger is shelved at Myanmar’s request
“The United Nations food aid agency withdrew a critical report revealing desperate hunger among the persecuted Rohingya population after the Myanmar government demanded it be taken down, the Guardian has learned. … However, WFP’s Executive Director David Beasley said in an emailed statement to the Guardian later on Tuesday that the agency would republish the report. ‘The assessment should not have been removed and I have directed that it be republished immediately in its original form,’ Beasley said. ‘Put simply, the World Food Programme stands firmly behind the findings of the report’…” (Holmes, 10/16).
