Of the six million people at risk, the most at threat are children whose parents are unable to face the inflation of up to 400%, the report signed by the World Food Program, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the humanitarian agency OCHA and the Children´s Fund.

The situation is similar of that experienced in 2011 when Somalia suffered a famine that lasted several months and claimed thousands of lives, but it is worse as the current lack of funding prevents assistance to the victims, the text adds.
