Food Op Continues After Pakistan Bombing

Published on 27 December 2010

A food relief program was expected to resume soon in the northwestern tribal region of Bajaur, where a suicide bomber killed 46 people outside a World Food Program center on Saturday, according to officials. “We have ceased operations in Bajaur for practical reasons,” Mageed Yahia, the deputy country director for the World Food Program in Pakistan, said in an interview on Monday. But he said operations would resume in the restive tribal region after security measures were in place and investigations completed. He said food relief activities were continuing in other parts of the country.
