Reuters | | Monday, June 25, 2007


BEIRUT Aid agencies pledged to continue efforts to deliver relief and evacuate the injured from the besieged Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp in north Lebanon despite an upsurge in fighting.

The deadly 24-day-old conflict between the army and Islamist militants saw two volunteer Red Cross workers killed on 11 June.

"Nothing is going to change. Yesterday [11 June] we continued our work as usual," Ghaleb Ayoubi, head of the communications department at the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) told IRIN. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) also pledged to continue working with its partners to deliver relief to the besieged camp.
