    Ethiopia's emergency food aid to run out next month

    Ethiopia will run out of emergency food aid for 7.8 million people affected by drought at the end of this month, the UN has warned.

    A famine in north-east Nigeria, South Sudan, Yemen and Somalia was dubbed the worst humanitarian crisis the world has faced since 1945 by the UN in March.

    It has left Ethiopia in a "dire situation", according to John Aylieff of the World Food Programme, a UN agency.
    "That means the 7.8 million people who are in need of humanitarian food assistance in Ethiopia will see that distribution cut abruptly at the end of June."

    His words were echoed by John Graham, of Save the Children He told AFP news agency: "After [the food runs out], we don't know what is going to happen.
