The safety and security of three staff members from the World Food Programme (WFP) who went missing in South Sudan at the beginning of April is of great concern, the UN agency has said.

They were reportedly traveling in a convoy from Malakal to Melut County in Upper Nile state to deliver food, when fighting broke out along the road they were travelling.

WFP operations in the area have been temporarily suspended.

For more details on the situation, Daniel Johnson spoke with WFP’s George Fominyen who is based in South Sudan.
