Sudan Starvation

  In Sudan, the United Nations estimates that at least three million children under five are malnourished. UNICEF says 20 percent of them suffer from severe acute malnutrition. Without treatment, about half will die, the UN agency says in a report.

A poor harvest has made the humanitarian crisis worse. Food prices have skyrocketed, leaving many more families struggling to feed their children. Staple food prices are 250 to 300 percent higher than they were last year.
