Due to the political and security crisis in North Mali, people suffer from hunger

More than three million Malians suffer from food insecurity as a result of the political and security crisis in the northern part of the country, the UN said Wednesday on the occasion of World Humanitarian Day. Mbaranga Gasarabwe, coordinator of the UN humanitarian action in Mali, told the press that “more than 715,000 children are at risk of acute malnutrition” nationwide. Mali is a Sahelian country whose food security is threatened all the time by the delay and lack of rain. The northern region is especially at risk. (AA)
