Famine looms in S.Sudan war zones as aid agencies blocked

UN agencies say 3.9 million people in South Sudan are facing a humanitarian crisisWeeks after UN-backed experts warned that thousands are dying of starvation in South Sudan war zones, aid agencies say they cannot access areas to stave off famine because of “spiralling” violence. Last month, UN agencies said 30,000 people were starving to death in Unity state, with Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) experts warning of a “concrete risk of famine” before the end of the year if fighting continues and aid does not reach the hardest hit areas. Medical aid agency Doctors Without Borders (MSF) warns that the “humanitarian crisis in southern Unity is on an unprecedented scale” with “repeated and targeted violence” against civilians.
