The United Nations has issued warning saying more than three million people in Somalia need urgent help because of malnutrition, war and other crises.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in a statement said over one million Somalis are unable to meet their basic food requirements.

This is first time the number of people in need of life-saving assistance has increased since the end of the devastating famine in 2011.
