Ethiopia's Tigray crisis: UN aid chief says there is famine


UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock has said there is famine in northern Ethiopia after the release of a UN-backed analysis of the situation.



"There is famine now," he said, adding: "This is going to get a lot worse."

The Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) found that 350,000 people were living in "severe crisis" in the war-torn Tigray region, as well as neighbouring Amhara and Afar.

Tigray has been devastated by fighting between government forces and rebels.

The IPC says the food situation in the region has reached the level of a "catastrophe", which it defines as starvation and death affecting small groups of people spread over large areas.
