Insecurity and logistical difficulties force WFP to suspend food delivery in eastern DRCListen /
Fighting between government troops and rebel forces has forced the World Food Programme (WFP) to temporarily suspend aid delivery to displaced people in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
More than 200,000 people have been newly displaced in the DRC this week, while scores of others have crossed the border into Uganda.
Patrick Maigua spoke to Elizabeth Byers, WFP spokesperson in Geneva, who says dense jungle conditions, poor transport routes and the constant moving of the internally displaced people (IDPs) also contribute to the difficulty in reaching them.
She describes the overall situation as "very worrying."
