Horn of Africa - people caught in the Malthusian Trap


Aid agencies have accused the world's richest countries of ''wilful neglect'' in failing to fund appeals to save millions of Africans from famine.
Nearly 11 million people are at risk of starvation in the Horn of Africa, including 500,000 children who "are suffering from imminent, life-threatening severe malnutrition," according to UNICEF. 1.6 million additional children under five years old are severely malnourished.
