Somalia aid theft not to limit UN efforts

UN says limiting theft is key to continuing relief efforts.

    The UN says it will not decrease food aid to Somalia despite reports of it being stolen.

    The UN acknowledged on Monday that it has been investigating theft in Somalia for two months. Reports indicate that gangs have been stealing aid from starving refugees, and selling it off for cash.
