Famine is spreading in Somalia. The United Nations' Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit determined Wednesday that three more regions of the embattled, drought-stricken nation are in a state of famine. Famine conditions are expected to spread throughout southern Somalia and persist until the end of the year. Almost half of Somalia's 7.5 million population is in crisis, with 3.2 million liable to die without immediate assistance.
"Despite increased attention in recent weeks, current humanitarian response remains inadequate, due in part to ongoing access restrictions and difficulties in scaling up emergency assistance programs, as well as funding gaps," the U.N.'s Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit said.
