Hunger crisis stalks Chad's children

UNICEF estimates 130,000 under age of five are at risk of acute malnutrition in worsening regional crisis.

    An estimated 130,000 children are at risk of developing acute malnutrition in the African nation of Chad this year, according to UNICEF, the UN Children's Fund.

    The situation is worsening by the day, UNICEF says, and other aid agencies claim funds are not coming in quickly enough alleviate the crisis.

    The humanitarian disaster stretches across borders into Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Burkina Faso, areas that have still not recovered from a drought two years ago.
