UN warns of 'acute' Afghan food crisis Updated: 2021-10-26 07:53:30 KST

The World Food Programme is warning tens of millions of Afghans, including children, could die of starvation unless urgent action is taken, calling for frozen funds to be released without delay for humanitarian efforts.
Speaking to Reuters on Monday, the agency's chief, David Beasley, said 22.8 million people, or more than half of Afghanistan's entire population are facing an acute food crisis.
The figure is higher than the 14 million reported two months ago, before the Taliban takeover, which in turn prompted donors to hold back billions of dollars in assistance.
The UN food agency says 220 million U.S. dollars would be needed as winter nears.
