HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) About half of Zimbabwes population faces severe hunger amid a devastating drought and economic collapse, the United Nations said Tuesday, noting a vicious cycle of skyrocketing malnutrition thats hitting women and children hardest.
The World Food Program said it plans to more than double the number it helps to more than 4 million. More than 7 million are in need.
