Niger children starving to death
19 July 2005
BBC video report:
"The world hasn't noticed what is happening here. Most children .. were in the advanced stages of starvation. Amina is so starved she cannot eat if she wants to. Hassan is six months old and weighs a third of what he should. But at least he is here. His twin sister starved to death two weeks ago. Fudu Usi cannot hold his head up, his muscles barely function. Whilst we were filming Muhammedo, a one year old, died."
"There has got to be other people coming quickly to help us out. The response has been desperately slow."
