City Long Cut Off by Fighting Gets Food

September 10, 1996|From Times Wire Reports

Aid workers provided about 4,000 children the first food aid they had received in seven months, after reaching a city that had been cut off by fighting among rival militias. Relief officials reached the city of Tubmanburg, about 35 miles north of Monrovia, the capital, on Saturday and found that at least 60% of the 35,000 residents were suffering from severe malnutrition.
