AIRLIFT TAKES OFF

WFP's airlift of emergency food rations to Niger took off on schedule today from its humanitarian response depot in Brindisi, southern Italy.

The Ilyushin 76 aircraft, its hold packed with 44 metric tons of high-energy biscuits, will reach Niger's capital Niamey this evening. A technical fault had delayed the flight by 24-hours.
