Fighting blocking food aid to parts of Libya

Published on 12 May 2011

The United Nations said on Thursday Libyans in the Western Mountains and the besieged city of Misrata risked food shortages unless humanitarian aid could get through. "I am increasingly concerned about the humanitarian situation and access to food for people trapped by the violence in this area," said Josette Sheeran, head of the Rome-based U.N. World Food Programme (WFP).
