African famine aid still falls short, UN food agency says

In the latest official report on the famine that threatens millions of Africans, experts said Tuesday that food shortages in 27 countries are worsening despite extensive shipments of international aid.

A report by the Rome-based United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said five countries are afflicted by severe famine - Chad, Ethiopia, Mali, Mauritania, and Mozambique. Four countries - Burundi, Kenya, Morocco, and Rwanda - have been added to the list of nations facing ''emergencies because of drought and other calamities'' since the previous FAO report was compiled in May.
