ATLANTA (July 3, 2008) - More than 14 million people in the Horn of Africa require urgent food aid and other humanitarian assistance over the coming months while, in Afghanistan, more than 6.5 million people are facing food insecurity.

Afghanistan is also bearing the brunt of soaring food prices globally, but in addition the country has less food than usual due to a shortfall in domestic agricultural production and a decrease in imported wheat from Pakistan.
