Libya 'heading for food crisis'

Published on 28 April 2011

Libya will suffer a large-scale food crisis within two months unless stocks are replenished and distribution networks are supported, the UN has said. The World Food Programme (WFP) said current stocks may last only 45 to 60 days after which many people will be forced to cut back on meals. WFP's regional director for the Middle East and north Africa said rising fuel prices and lack of hard currency are making it hard for Libya to import food.
