Access to some parts of Tigray remains constrained even as all four road corridors are now open, the World Food Programme says. Aid deliveries into Tigray are “not matching the needs” of the stricken region, the United Nations food agency has said, even as a ceasefire takes hold in war-torn northern Ethiopia. Even before the suspension of aid, the UN had warned many in Tigray already faced starvation, with some 90 percent of its six million people dependent on food assistance. “Since the start of November, WFP has reached 29 percent of its caseload of 2.1 million people with food assistance in the Tigray region,” WFP said. The two parties signed a peace deal in South Africa on November 2 that agreed to unfettered aid into Tigray.
