The European Union's executive commission on Thursday announced 15 million euros (20 million dollars) in humanitarian aid to vulnerable communities in Zimbabwe.

The money will be spent on emergency food and farming programmes as well as water sanitation, and is aimed at benefitting displaced people, HIV/AIDS victims, orphans and other vulnerable children, the commission said.

"The European Commission is committed to providing humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable Zimbabweans, regardless of the political situation there," said EU aid commissioner Louis Michel.

Last month EU foreign ministers extended for a year sanctions, including an arms embargo, against Zimbabwe in protest against the authoritarian regime of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.
