Children are reportedly starving to death in Ethiopia

The aid group MSF has said that almost 70 malnourished children have died this month in one area of Ethiopia, and warns this could be just the tip of the iceberg.

MSF says there are extremely high levels of malnutrition in Doolo zone, in Ethiopia's Somali-speaking region, caused by drought, which has led to the death of livestock - a major source of food.

The organisation says the situation is the worst it has seen in the area in the ten years it has been working there. There are also concerns that the supplies of emergency food will run out by the end of next month.
