    Pakistan probe as 23 children die - International / News / The Courier


    Authorities in Pakistan are investigating whether malnutrition is responsible for the deaths of nearly two dozen children in the country's drought-hit desert south.

    Kamran Zia, chief spokesman for the National Disaster Management Authority, said on Saturday as many as 23 children have died in the villages of Tharparkar desert in the southern Sindh province since February.

    He said it was unclear whether the children died from a shortage of food or medical problems.

    Imdad Ali Keerio, spokesman for the top elected official in the province, said investigators were also trying to determine who was responsible for delays in sending food and medicine to the area.

    Tharparkar is located 650 miles south of the capital Islamabad. The region is experiencing lower-than-average rainfall.

    This statement also proves that the people in this area are in constant need of food and medicines. Despite this, children died. This means the area has been and still is suffering from mal-nutrition.

    This was a very sad thing to happen. But at least now we know the truth.
