More than four million flood victims at risk of starvation in war-ravaged region.



    The semi-autonomous region of southern Sudan is due to hold an indpendence referendum in January.

    But the region is still reeling from the effects of a decades-long civil war with the North, and more than four million people are facing possible starvation after recent floods.
