ALMOST ONE MILLION PEOPLE FACE SEVERE HUNGER IN NORTHERN MOZAMBIQUE AFTER ISLAMIST MILITANT ATTACKS.

Almost one million people face severe hunger in northern Mozambique, where hundreds of thousands have fled Islamist militant attacks.
The United Nations food agency, the World Food Programme, WFP, said this was because Islamic State-linked insurgents last month attacked Palma, a town in Cabo Delgado province next to gas projects under development by companies including Total and Exxon.
The WFP said in a briefing in Geneva that nine hundred and fifty thousand people were now hungry in Mozambique, and appealed to donors for 82 million dollars to confront the crisis.
