BBC: UN warns of Afghan food shortage
Nearly two million people in southern Afghanistan will need food aid this winter because of drought, the UN and Afghan government have warned.
They have appealed for more than $40m in emergency funds, in addition to an earlier appeal for $76m.

Afghanistan is facing a shortfall in its wheat harvest just after beginning to recover from an earlier drought.

The crop failure comes as fighting continues in the south between Nato-led troops and the Taleban.
