LONDON (AP) — The British government has announced a further 100 million pounds ($160.7 million) in humanitarian funding to help bring food, water and medicine to those affected by Syria's civil war.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced the funding Wednesday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, saying that as the international community seeks a political solution to the crisis, it mustn't ignore the needs of ordinary Syrians.
He said there is a "huge gap" in humanitarian funding for Syria and urged other nations present at the assembly to meet the shortfall.
The new funding means Britain has now committed 500 million pounds to the Syrian humanitarian crisis.
One day earlier, the U.S. announced $339 million in additional humanitarian aid to refugees and countries affected by the war.
