U.S. Halts Food Aid to Ethiopia, Accuses Military of Diverting Deliveries Away from Civilians

HeadlineJun 09, 2023

The Biden administration said Thursday it is halting all food assistance to Ethiopia, citing a “widespread and coordinated campaign” to divert the aid away from people in need. Reuters reports USAID believes the food has been seized by Ethiopian military units. The U.S. is by far the largest donor of humanitarian aid to Ethiopia, where some 20 million people are experiencing food insecurity due to the recently ended war in Tigray and a persistent drought fueled by the climate crisis.
