One billion suffer from world hunger





One billion people throughout the world suffer from hunger, a figure which has increased by 100 million because of the global financial crisis, says the UN.

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said the figure was a record high.

Compared with last year, there are 100 million more people who are hungry, meaning they consume fewer than 1,800 calories a day, the FAO said.
