Starving Sudanese eat seeds meant for crops

AID agencies fear starving Sudanese will eat seeds that have been delivered for crops instead of planting them.

They are concerned that 350,000 people will be starving by October unless food supplies are allowed into the south of the country soon.

Poor harvests, drought and national conflict means the country is facing its worst famine in nearly 10 years.
