The UN and hunger

(March 10, 2014)

The UN released a report that hunger is increasing. It came from the Food and Agricultural Organization. I just wanted to say that the BBC Arabic interviewed an FAO official from Rome via Skype, and though he did not speak Arabic, they had a translation going.

It was important enough that they set up their own interview; they didn't just make an Arabic copy of a report released by the regular English BBC.
