EC Gives War Aid

The European Commission announced Tuesday that it has released an additional 5 million euros ($4.5 million) for assisting Chechens who have been driven from their homes by the war.

The money, to be distributed to international nongovernmental organizations and UN agencies working in the North Caucasus, will be used to provide health care, food, shelter materials, water and sanitation supplies, the commission said in a statement.
