(A) Highlights

(a) In Burundi, WFP has so far distributed some 2,500 tons of food under the ongoing Seed Protection Rations (SPR) campaign.

(b) Insecurity across Darfur continued to deteriorate, with a number of security incidents reported particularly against humanitarian agencies this week.

(c) The overall security situation throughout Afghanistan continues to impose limits on WFP operations. The on-going military operations against the insurgents in southern, south-eastern and eastern regions have prompted population displacement and are worsening the physical and food security of many people who are already chronically food insecure.
