First UN relief flight lands in Myanmar after 2 day delay
The U.N.'s World Food Program says one of its planes has landed in Myanmar as part of the first major international airlift of aid to cyclone victims, reported AP.
A U.N. official says one plane from Italy arrived in Myanmar, and three more will land later Thursday.
She said the planes will bring key relief items including high-energy biscuits and medical kits. The official requested anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media.
The planes had waited on the tarmac for the last two days to get the junta's clearance to bring in relief supplies to the devastated Southeast Asian country.
