Myanmar Blocking Most Cyclone Aid

Click to Read

Myanmar Blocking Most Cyclone Aid A trickle of aid shipments arrived in Myanmar on Sunday, more than a week after a powerful cyclone smashed the country, but officials continued to bar major shipments to more than a million of the storm's hard-hit survivors. The junta is refusing to grant entry to foreign aid workers, who relief officials say are crucial to preventing more deaths from disease among an estimated 1.5 million victims of the May 3 storm. The United Nations World Food Program said that only one visa had been approved out of 16 it had requested and the aid group World Vision said it had requested 20 visas but received two.
