    Aid workers are warning of mass starvation because of conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    They say three million people in the Kasai region don't have enough to eat - including 400,000 children.

    Fighting between the army and rebels has meant farmers have been unable to plant crops for several years.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Kasai-Central, Democratic Republic of Congo.
