An "emergency infusion" of aid is urgently needed in Zimbabwe amid a worsening humanitarian crisis, a medical charity is warning. In a report, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) says the country's whole health system has collapsed. Zimbabwe is experiencing the worst cholera outbreak in its history. This latest appeal follows calls from politicians, humanitarian and campaign groups for the world to take more action over the situation in Zimbabwe. Almost 3,400 people have died from cholera since August 2008 and more than 68,000 are infected, according to the United Nations. (BBC)
