A malnourished and dehydrated child lies on a bed in hospital.
At least 67 people have lost their lives and over 560 others have been hospitalized due to starvation and cholera in famine-stricken Somalia, Press TV reported.


The victims include several children and women who have been affected by cholera in the southern towns of Somalia.

Hundreds of victims were rushed to private hospitals for emergency treatment in Afgooye, Bay and Bakool regions. However, several hospitals are lacking basic supplies and medicine.

Medics say cholera is also spreading to other regions in south and central Somalia.

Drought and famine have affected more than 11.8 million people across Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia.

Somalia has been the hardest-hit country in what is being described as the worst drought in the Horn of Africa in 60 years.

The international community has promised aid for Somalia and a substantial amount has already been sent.

However, the United Nations says far more help is needed for the country, adding that 3.2 million Somalis are in need of immediate lifesaving assistance.
