The United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) has temporarily suspended food assistance in some parts of Sudan’s state of Gezira as fighting spreads south and east of Khartoum, the capital city.

The aid agency said in a statement that it had put food deliveries on hold in some locations in Gezira.

But its representative and country director in Sudan, Eddie Rowe, added that its teams were working around the clock to provide food aid in locations where it was still possible.

Around 300,000 people have fled Gezira in a matter of days since clashes erupted last week on Friday, WFP said.
