20 Million People Need Food In Horn Of Africa

The World Food Programme has sent a warning that more than 20 million people in the Horn of Africa need food aid because of two years of poor rainfall. According to the WFP, people across Kenya, Somalia, Eritrea, and Djibouti have been increasingly living on the edge, afflicted by natural disasters, wars, endemic poverty and malnutrition. The World Food Programme says an added problem is that congestion in Djibouti's port is holding up the flow of relief supplies.
