Myanmar cyclone victims at risk one year on: experts

Published on 29 April 2009

Survivors of Cyclone Nargis are at risk of being abandoned one year on, as Myanmar's junta threatens fresh curbs on foreign aid workers and donors hold back for political reasons, experts say. (...) "We are obviously very anxious at the moment about possible shifts going on," Chris Kaye, Myanmar country director for the World Food Programme, told AFP. "The whole issue of the visas seems to be indicative of a tightening of access and maybe increasing restrictions in terms of what the international community can do, (but) we are working through this problem as best we can."
