    A report issued Thursday warns that over 350,000 people in #Ethiopia’s #Tigray province are facing #famine and over 2 million are just a step away, blaming the dire situation on the ongoing conflict that has forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee, limited #humanitarian access and the loss of harvests and income. The report said the 350,000 people represent the largest number of people facing famine since the 2011 famine in Somalia.
