The World Food Program has halted its operation in another state in Southern Sudan due to security reasons.
The United Nations agency said it cancelled all of its activities in the state of Lakes after the Southern Sudanese army seized food aid for schools in the region, Reuters reports.
WFP has earlier suspended its work in the northern part of Jonglei state following the killing of one of the agency’s staff members in an attack in the area on Friday (April 22).
Suspension of WFP activities in the two states will adversely affect 235,000 people, according to Amor Almagro, a WFP spokesperson.
