Photo of the Day

Associated Press
In this Tuesday, May 1, 2012 photo, Maryam Sy and five of her nine children share a meager bowl of tamarind-flavored porridge, some of the only food they will get that day, in the village of Goudoude Diobe, in the Matam region of northeastern Senegal. Since late 2011, aid groups have been sounding the alarm, warning that devastating drought has again weakened communities where children already live perilously close to the edge of malnutrition.The situation is most severe in Niger, Chad and in Mali, but this time it has also pervaded northern Senegal, the most prosperous and stable country in the Sahel.
