    Iran will send more humanitarian aid to North Korea. Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency reported Monday that the country's Red Crescent told North Korea's Red Cross that it will ship food items, including powdered milk, as well as relief and medical supplies to the impoverished country.

    An official with the North's Red Cross said Pyongyang has received blankets and tents from Iran, and that it may need more help as heavy rainfalls are forecast for the coming months.

    Western countries have criticized both Iran and the North for their respective nuclear programs, and particularly for their alleged links on missile technology.
