The UN has been dropping food supplies in Nyal, South Sudan every three months since 2014. The town is unsafe to reach by road, with attacks on humanitarian agencies common. Supplies were dropped on Sunday and Monday by the United Nations World Food Programme, which said it expected 30,000 people will have come by the time it has delivered the final drop on Tuesday.
