Niger facing catastrophic hunger crisis
Millions of people across central and western Africa are going hungry.
The worst affected is Niger, a country larger than the US states of California and Texas put together, but with a population of just 15 million.
The United Nations has called for international help and whilst that call has been answered to some extent - it has not been enough.
Zeinab Badawi has been to a remote part of Niger in the region of Zinder to assess the impact of the crisis there.
