UN says 34 countries don’t have enough food for their people

Thirty four countries – nearly 80 percent of them in Africa – don’t have enough food for their people because of conflicts, drought and flooding, according to a U.N. report released Wednesday.

The Food and Agriculture Organization’s Crop Prospects and Food Situation report said conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and the Central African Republic have taken a heavy toll on agricultural production, worsening the humanitarian crisis in those countries.
