Humanitarian agencies deliver food aid to Benghazi

Civilians in Lybia

In Libya, humanitarian agencies continue trying to help those in need. For the first time since the no-fly zone began, the World Food Programme (WFP) was able to send several truck loads of supplies to Benghazi from Egypt. The International Committee of the Red Cross, which is one of WFP’s partners, has been helping to distribute the 18 tons of aid which includes food and blankets. Julie Walker spoke by satellite phone with Simon Brooks, who heads the ICRC mission in the city of Benghazi.
