More than three million people are facing starvation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), says David Beasley the head of the UN World Food Programme (WFP), who is appealing for aid to avert a humanitarian crisis in Kasai province.
In an interview with the BBC Beasley further warned that hundreds of thousands of children could die in the coming months if urgent aid was not delivered.

Kasai province has been the hardest hit.
