Record UN aid going to Syrians

Tuesday, September 02, 2014 - Updated: 8:33 AM

BEIRUT (AP) -- The World Food Program provided assistance to a record 4.1 million people inside Syria last month, reaching more of those in need with shipments traversing borders and front lines, the agency said Tuesday.

Syria's civil war has touched off a massive humanitarian crisis, with some 10.8 million people in need of assistance, including 4.7 million in hard-to-reach areas, according to the U.N.

Getting humanitarian aid to them has proven a massive challenge for the international community. The Syrian government refused to allow the U.N. to ship assistance to those in need without Damascus' approval, ensuring that rebel-held areas remained off-limits.
