South Sudan famine crisis: U.N agencies airdrop emergency food rations
Date created :
In tonight's edition, U.N agencies airdrop food rations in famine-hit areas of South Sudan, striking doctors in Kenya refuse to resume work, and over half of women in Tunisia say they have suffered physical or mental abuse.
Food aid is delivered to the parts of South Sudan facing famine. Hundreds of thousands risk starvation as drought and years of civil war have paralyzed agriculture.
Kenyan doctors dig their heels in over state threats to sack any medics who remain on a strike that already lasts three months. Unions say caving to intimidation would amount to career suicide.
Victims of domestic violence in Tunisia often feel they get little help from authorities. A new law aims to make it easier for courts to act and – hopefully - encourage people to report abuse.
