UN Unable to Reach 1 Million Syrians in Need of Food Aid

The World Food Programme is unable to reach about 1 million Syrians in need of food in some of the regions hardest hit by the civil war.

The United Nations agency said it is providing food assistance to about 1.5 million people in Syria, 85 percent of them internally displaced, every month. The Syrian Arab Red Crescent asked in October for an increase in the number of beneficiaries to 2.5 million, the agency said.
