The World Food Program says Russia has donated 41 trucks to support food delivery operations in Afghanistan. They are valued at $2.7 million.

WFP Afghanistan Director Louis Imbleau thanked the Russian government for such a generous donation, saying logistics is a key element in getting food to hungry people in the war-torn country. He added the trucks will replace vehicles in the WFP fleet that “are long past their prime.”

The donation brings the number of the WFP-owned vehicles in Afghanistan to 174. The trucks have capacity of 14 metric tons and have so far delivered more than 100,000 metric tons of food and non-food items to the needy.

In violence Tuesday, one NATO soldier died in a bomb blast in southern Afghanistan.
