Hunger Kills 2,000 Ethiopian Kids In One Year

At least 1,900 children under the age of five, have died from malnutrition in Ethiopia's embattled Tigray region in one year.

This is according to a study conducted by regional health officials and seen by The Associated Press.

The Daily Sabah reports on Wednesday that the deaths were recorded at health facilities across Tigray between June last year and April 1.

Western Tigray, which is under the control of forces from the neighbouring Amhara region, was not included in the survey.

A doctor involved in the study said; "Because we cannot access most areas, we do not know what is happening on the community level."

"These are simply the deaths we have managed to record in health facilities."

According to U.N. figures, more than 90% of Tigray's 5.5 million people require humanitarian assistance, including 115,000 severely malnourished children.
