LONDON - Libya faces a humanitarian crisis due to heavy fighting and food supplies are not being adequately replenished, UN agency the World Food Program (WFP) said on Wednesday.




UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said earlier up to 3.6 million people in Libya may need humanitarian assistance as rebels press their fight against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.




"Libya faces a humanitarian crisis following an unprecedented level of upheaval and violence," the WFP said in a statement.




"The future of the public subsidized food distribution system in Libya is very worrying to WFP and food security partners."
