The United States is providing an additional $120 million in aid to the Horn of Africa, where a lack of rain is again threatening food supplies.
This is the second time this month the United States has announced major humanitarian aid to the Horn, following a $50-million contribution April 5.
The White House says the new aid is designed to prevent the food crisis from escalating in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. It says poor rains in the region “are expected to have a significant negative impact on crop production.”
