UN food agency halts north Gaza deliveries after gunfire and looting

The UN's food agency said Tuesday it has paused deliveries of aid to northern Gaza despite widespread hunger, after a convoy of trucks faced gunfire and looting.

The World Food Programme (WFP) resumed deliveries on Sunday after a three-week suspension but its convoy "faced complete chaos and violence due to the collapse of civil order" and its teams reported witnessing "unprecedented levels of desperation", it said.
