Published on 26 March 2010

The UN's World Food Programme said Thursday that it was preparing to more than double food aid to Niger, where famine is looming amid a poor harvest. Niger is becoming a "major humanitarian challenge" as the "last harvest was very bad due to a shortage of rain," said Josette Sheeran, executive director of the World Food Programme.
