Over 700 children died in nutrition centers – UNICEF

Over 700 children have died in nutrition centers in Somalia.
According to UNICEF on Tuesday, the deaths occurred over the span of 7 months starting in January this year.
Children in these centers are usually treated for severe acute malnutrition and for other diseases.
Figures show that 8-million people, or half the country’s population, are facing dire hunger levels.
The country looks likely to face a 5th failed rainy season, with the UN warning on Monday that parts of Somalia are in danger of another famine.
