The UN food agency says it has had to start cutting rations to 4 million people in Zimbabwe because of a lack of funds. The World Food Program (WFP) said it had had no response to its October appeal for USD 140 million to feed Zimbabwe. Food could run out entirely by January unless fresh support is provided, the WFP warned, as it takes six weeks for supplies to reach rural areas. Up to half the 10 million population may need food before the next harvest is expected in April, the agency said. (BBC)
