Such things are always a problem in conflict zones. But most of it gets through to those who need it.

Things are bad in South Sudan. Many hungry, displaced people who have lost everything. The aid still needs to go in and people here still need to keep donating to the various appeals...

Sad situation, but everyone knows that the military TAKES first dibs on any aid that goes into any poor, war-torn country.

We all know that this is an ongoing problem in any war torn country, as to what to do to solve it is anybodies guess.

That's just horrible...but really not surprising. This happens way too often. So wrong. Thx Shaheen

Sadly incidents such as this send a totally wrong message to those giving the support.
