Ahead of the UN annual report launch, Save the Children charity has estimated that 4.5 million children under five, living in conflict zones, will need to be treated for hunger-related problems and 5,90,000 might die due to lack of treatment. The charity stated that countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan and Yemen are facing a shortage of funding for food and 'starvation is being used as a weapon of war'.
