Somalia famine spreads 'beyond reach of aid'

Far to little and way too late, that is how the U.N. operates.

But the reason why is only due to the fact that NOBODY wants to really help this part of the World; and for good reason.

Too many countries have tried and been burnt in the end, there is no helping savages.

Too bad because of that small children have too suffer and die, but this is what the Militants want.

Famine has spread to a sixth area of Somalia and tens of thousands of people have died as a result of severe food shortages, the United Nations has said.

More than half of Somalia's entire population faces a severe food shortage, and the world body has now officially extended the famine zone.

In Mogadishu, there are now half a million refugees and there are warnings from the UN that the famine could spread to the entire south of the country by the end of the year.

The UN says it needs at least $1bn, but one leading charity says the public is being mislead into believing that money can solve the crisis.

Medicine Sans Frontiere, Doctors Without Borders, wants international aid agencies to admit that reaching some of the worst affected victims of famine may not be possible.
