Famine

South Sudan still faces starvation as famine is declared over - UPI.com
UPI reports: "South Sudan is no longer in a state of famine, although 1.7 million people still face emergency levels of hunger, a United Nations-backed report said. Tens of thousands of South Sudanese have died and millions displaced in a long-running civil war. The conflict, a series of inadequate harvests and a corresponding rise in the price of food led to the declaration of a famine in February."

Comment: This is some good news, for a change, although the report suggests that it's a stretch to say all is well in the region.
