‘Clear Evidence of Humanitarian Need’ in N Korea: UN Aid Chief

The United Nations has urged the need for humanitarian assistance for more than ten million people of North Korea. The UN Humanitarian Chief Mark Lowcock, during his visit to Pyongyang, said that more than half polulation of children in rural areas have no clean water. He further warned that international sanctions over North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs are exacerbating humanitarian problems by slowing aid deliveries as twenty percent of children in North Korea suffer from malnutrition, highlighting the need for more funding for humanitarian aid.
