UN food agency resumes work in Somali city of KismayoListen /
The World Food Programme (WFP) has begun providing food assistance in the southern Somali city of Kismayo for the first time in more than four years.
The port city had been under the Al Shabaab Islamist extremists until they were expelled last year by Somali forces, supported by troops from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
The agency says that a recent survey showed high levels of malnutrition and food insecurity in the city.
WFP Spokesperson for Somalia, Susannah Nicol, tells UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha that her agency has two programmes in Kismayo.
