Of the 1,383,000 indigenous people in Colombia, at least 55,000 are facing food shortages, local media reported Sunday.

According to Gabriel Muyuy Jacanamejoy, the director of the Presidential Program for Indigenous Affairs, the malnutrition is primarily affecting children.

At least 50 children died this year of diseases related to malnutrition, Muyuy stated.

The official added that no official figures were available, because the majority of the children who died were buried in their territorities without being reported to the authorities.
