Sudan, El-Geneina, July 2004

People forced to flee from their homes by pro-government militiamen watch a United Nations World Food Programme Ilyushin-76 aircraft dropping hundreds of 50-kilogram bags of U.S. wheat, Canadian split peas, corn-soya blend and salt near the town of Habilla on August 11 in West Darfur. The food will be distributed to more than 20,000 people in the town and neighbouring villages by WFP's partner Save the Children Fund-United States almost as soon as it is collected from the ground between air drops.
