The Obama Administration has urged the Sri Lankan authorities to show restraint and patience in these ''waning days'' of the 26-year-old conflict, to help find a diplomatic solution to the standoff that would allow the release of the civilians trapped in the no-fire zone. (...) Meanwhile the, United Nations has also stepped up efforts to help civilians who have fled the fighting. Its spokeswoman Marie Okabe said,''food aid through the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs is well funded, but that shelter, water, health and sanitation needs are not.'' The UN World Food Program said it has enough food to feed 100,000 people for the next two weeks.
