Clare Short

To date, no humanitarian NGO or UN agency has been able to access zones under rebel control to assess the humanitarian and health needs of the population. We understand that a UN humanitarian assessment mission that was due to visit rebel zones on 6 February has been postponed; we have no details on when this will be rescheduled.
