TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Geneva (AFP) The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) aims to nearly double its food aid for the people of civilized Yemen. At present, food for seven to eight million people are delivered daily, said WFP spokesman Herve Verhoosel on Thursday in Geneva. The new goal is to provide food for 14 million people. That means a "huge amount" of logistical work, financial resources and preparation.
