Doctors Without Borders on Wednesday described ‘alarming’ malnutrition in parts of Ethiopia’s war-hit Tigray region and said the situation was likely to worsen with the coming rainy season. The AFP reports that the medical charity said residents were struggling to access food distribution points and lamented that the aid response ‘hardly ever extends beyond larger towns’ to Tigray’s rural areas. Karline Kleijer, head of MSF’s emergency support department, said in a statement ‘MSF teams are observing alarming levels of malnutrition among children and pregnant and breastfeeding mothers screened at mobile clinics across several locations throughout the Northwest region of Tigray.’
