Half a million people were displaced due to conflict in the northern areas of Mali, where the vulnerable population is still recovering from the recent drought in the Sahel region.

The World Food Programme (WFP) says despite insecurity, it has managed to provide emergency food to over 270,000 people in the north, including 70,000 internally displaced.

In this interview, WFP's spokesperson Elizabeth Byrs, tells UN Radio's Mamadou Alpha Diallo from Geneva, that the food agency stands ready to assist the conflict-affected people in Mali.
