UN to boost Ivory Coast food supplies amid violence

Published on 11 March 2011

The UN's World Food Programme (WFP) said Friday it plans to assist over 125,000 people in the Ivory Coast as well as some 80,000 who have poured into neighbouring Liberia in a bid to flee the violence in their country. (..) The number of refugees and internally displaced people is reaching worrying proportions and with violence against civilians continuing in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) it can only get worse,' the WFP's Regional Director Thomas Yanga said.
