By SABC News

And Ethiopia's government and aid agencies are calling on international donors to offer prompt action as they seek 1.4 Billion US dollars to respond to the worsening humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia - which has been exacerbated by the El Niño weather phenomenon.

The United Nations says El Nino has caused drought and flooding across Africa, leaving 20 million people short of food in the south of the continent and 14 million in the east.
