The World Food Programme (WFP) is stepping up its assistance to tens of thousands of migrant workers who are fleeing political unrest in Libya.  ore than 100,000 people have fled the North African country into Tunisia and Egypt over the last two weeks.  The immediate concern is to provide food and shelter to the tens of thousands of people gathered on the border between Libya and Tunisia.  Josette Sheeran, the Executive Director of WFP, has visited the border area.  Reem Abaza asked her what she saw.
