WFP said it will help feed almost 10,000 Guinea Bissau refugees in the neighbouring state of Guinea. The refugees are in the locations of Boke, Sabsale, Koumbia, Foulamori and Sareboido, the agency said. It said that in a visit to these areas in Guinea between 24 and 27 October, a joint WFP, UNHCR, UNICEF and IFRC delegation recommended that the refugees and returnees be regrouped in two major camps around Boke and Gaoual (Koumbia).
