More than 200,000 Somalis are suffering catastrophic food shortages and many are dying of hunger, with that number set to rise to over 700,000 next year, according to an analysis by an alliance of U.N. agencies and aid groups.
Children in Somalia are dying of hunger. Half the country’s population is in need of food aid and Islamist militant group al Shabab exacerbates the situation by blocking aid to a starving population. Deutsche Welle reports from the south of the country.
