Food aid delivered to the besieged Libyan city of Misrata

WFP's logistics team in North Africa.

Food is running out fast in the Libyan port city of Misrata, the World Food Programme said on Wednesday as it delivered enough aid to feed 25,000 people.

It is the fourth time WFP has sent food to Misrata for civilians trapped in the fighting between government and opposition forces.

Jocelyne Sambira reports.

 A ship carrying food aid from the World Food Programme arrived in Misrata on Wednesday.   

The ship is delivering more than 420 metric tons of food– enough to feed 25,000 people for one month.

The agency says it is concerned about the dwindling food supplies in war-torn Libya.

WFP has hired another vessel of food to reach the besieged city of Misrata in the coming days.
