More than 970,000 people are at risk of starvation following a severe drought in northeastern Uganda. Humanitarian agencies in the region say that people have resorted to eating wild fruits, leaves, and rodents for survival. The UN World Food Program and the Ugandan government have launched a 64 million U.S. dollar emergency operation to avoid the situation slipping into famine.(Xinhua/Ronald Ssekandi)
