WFP Resumes Food Aid Operations In South Sudan

The World Food Program (WFP) has resumed food aid operations in South Sudan after operations were suspended last month because of violence, Reuters reports. “Southern authorities had given assurances that no food aid would be commandeered again, the U.N. organisation said in a statement late on Thursday,” the article notes, adding that “[m]ore than 1,100 people have died this year in rebel and tribal violence across nine of the south’s 10 states, displacing nearly 100,000 people, according to official figures” (5/13).
