Starvation is threatening the survivors of more than two months of fighting in Ethiopia’s Tigray region.

Authorities say more than 4.5 million people there need emergency food.

The first humanitarian workers to arrive after pleading with the Ethiopian government for access describe weakened children dying from diarrhea, empty shops and refugees begging for something to eat.

One new report says parts of Tigray are likely a step below famine.

The head of the emergency unit for Doctors Without Borders says, “There is an extreme urgent need” to scale up the humanitarian response.

“The population is dying every day as we speak,” she says.
