Food experts meet to plan relief for starving Africans

Experts from more than 40 nations met Monday to devise a strategy to increase food production in Africa, where a three-year drought has threatened millions of people with starvation.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization is sponsoring a 10-day forum on food supply problems in what one of the papers prepared for the conference calls the world's ''hungriest'' continent. Experts say about one-sixth of Africa's population of more than 500 million is underfed.

Agricultural ministers from at least 40 African nations are attending the conference.
