In southern Madagascar, people are dying of hunger

Famine gentlemen once again south of the island of Madagascar. Victims of drought, poor governance, predatory companies but also rural banditry, hundreds of thousands of people are acutely malnourished and in desperate need of food aid. Locals say at least 15 people have starved to death, including several children, but experts believe the real figure could be much higher. The authorities have been caught guarding the catastrophic situation. Reports Gaëlle Borgia.
