Somalia aid row - 'no WFP wrongdoing'

By Channel 4 News

Updated on 10 December 2009

An official investigation into the sale of UN aid supplies in Somalia finds there was no evidence of wrongdoing by World Food Programme staff.

This summer Channel 4 News filmed sacks of UN aid supplies openly on sale in Somalia as millions of people in the war-torn country went hungry.

Our report was so disturbing that Britain refused to commit any further money to the UN's World Food Programme there until the claims were properly investigated.

Today we obtained the results of that official investigation - and though the WFP is refusing to publish it, we are told it finds no evidence of wrongdoing by WFP staff.
