According to a UN report, about 250,000 Somalis are facing famine.

The document that was published on Friday says that the volatile country is seeing the worst food crisis in the world.

Thousands of people have died of starvation since April 2011 and about 4 mln people, which accounts for one third of the country’s entire population, urgently need food aid.
