UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations has temporarily suspended aid deliveries in Nigeria's northeastern state of Borno, the former stronghold of Boko Haram militants, after a humanitarian convoy was attacked and two people injured, the UN children's agency UNICEF said on Thursday.

UNICEF said unknown assailants attacked the convoy on Thursday as it returned from delivery aid. Severely malnourished children are dying in large numbers in northeast Nigeria, where food supplies are close to running out, Doctors Without Borders said on Wednesday.
