Ethiopia is facing a new famine as drought and rising food prices threaten starvation for 4.5 million children, aid agencies warned.

 

Children under five are worst affected with more than 75,000 suffering from severe malnutrition and in need of urgent care, according to Unicef.

 

An estimated 3.4 million Ethiopians will need emergency food aid over the next three months while nearly double that figure are at risk of malnutrition.

 

The World Food Programme estimates that 75 million is needed to help look after those children at risk of hunger.
