The United Nations is to launch an appeal for emergency flood aid for Sri Lanka.

UN Resident Coordinator Neil Buhne said he was urging donors to generously support priority needs such as mosquito nets, clean water and food. Mr Buhne said in a statement that the UN’s aid appeal would be issued in the coming days. He pointed out that funds were urgently needed to help replant flooded rice fields and also compensate people affected.
