    RED CROSS ASKED TO LEAVE SOMALIA, BUT DOES NOT GIVE UP

    The islamistic al-Shabaab militsia has asked Red Cross to leave Somalia.

    This means that 1.1 million malnourished people are at risk of starving to death. So the general-secretary of Danish Red Cross, Anders Ladekarl, says to DR News.

    This means that the children and adults who are 100 percent dependent on our supplies will get no food!!

    This also means that the 2 big hospitals run by us in Mogadishu will not get supplies - and that the many clinics for malnourished children and their mothers do not get medicine or food. This will have grave consequences, says Anders Ladekarl.

    ^I am afraid that the al-Shabaab militsia might want to starve the population. Maybe the militsia has some food for them provided that the young boys and men join the militsia. Join and you and your family can get food - OR you will starve to death.

    Very sad situation, indeed!

    UNICEF FEARS IN RELATION TO THE CHILDREN IN THE SAHEL REGION IN AFRICA

    1 million children are at risk of starving to death in the drought-stricken Sahel region in Africa.

    About 15 million people are at risk of serious food shortage that might trigger an extensive, humanitarian crisis in the Sahel region in Africa.

    Little rain, bad harvests and empty food stores hit the entire region.

    This applies to the areas from MAURETANIA, through the northern SENEGAL, MALI, NIGER, BURKINA FASO and the northern NIGERIA to TCHAD.

    UNITED NATIONS ASKS FOR HELP TO FIGHT FOOD CRISIS

    3 UN organisations ask for funds to prevent a food crisis in the SAHEL region in Africa.

    "Children are the victims. In the worst case, many children will die, many families will suffer
    ", so says UNICEF's Anthony Lake.

    UNICEF is behind the appeal together with the World Health Organization / WHO and UN's High Commissariat for Refugees / UNHCR.

    Around 15 million people - among them 1.5 million children - may be affected by drought, high food prices and regional conflicts.

    AID AGENCIES WARN OF FAMINE IN WEST AFRICA

    In some Westafrican countries a big famine is threatening. Aid agencies warn that by this summer 15 million people are without water and food. In particular babys, small children and old people are affected.

    The World Food Programme needs about 550 million Euro to prevent famine. So far only half this amount har been pledged.

    The crisis is caused by shortage of rain, too high grain prices and political unrest.

    This morning - Thursday, 12 July, 2012 - a Danish information manager / officer representing UNICEF informed the viewers of Danish TV2 News about the current situation in the SAHEL REGION in WEST AFRICA (covering i.a. Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauretania, Nigeria and Cameroun).

    UNICEF is increasing its efforts in the Sahel region in West Africa in an attempt to fight the many cases of cholera in the region.

    15 MILLION PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING FROM SHORTAGE OF FOOD AND WATER DUE TO THE FOOD CRISIS.

    IT IS RAINING IN THE AREA WHICH IS GOOD IN SOME WAYS, BUT IT ALSO INCREASES THE NUMBER OF CHOLERA CASES IN THE AREA.

    AT LEAST 60 HAVE DIED OF CHOLERA SO FAR THIS YEAR. 2,800 ARE INFECTED.
