No humanitarian supplies from UN, WFP, say TRO officials

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 January 2009, 11:34 GMT]
The World Food Programme (WFP) officials responsible for the food supply to civilians in Vanni and UN officials who were in the Chunthanthirapuram food station, the only station for delivering food supplies, are yet to resume humanitarian supplies to the thousands of civilians who are without any supplies, a Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO) official told TamilNet from Chuthanthirapuram. The WFP and UN officials fled the 'safety zone' after the artillery barrage by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA). Now, they are staying in Puthukkudiyiruppu (PTK), according to the instructions by the SLA, the TRO officials further said.

The civilians express fear that the SLA was attempting to remove the remaining foreign witnesses away from civilians.

Meanwhile, the TRO has been struggling to supply bread and cooked food to the IDPs.
