New York (dpa) - At least 38 million people in Africa are threatened by hunger, caused mostly by a drought that is extending from the Horn of Africa to the southern part of the continent, the World Food Programme (WFP) said Tuesday.

''This is an unprecedented crisis, which calls for an unprecedented response,'' Morris said.
