The government of Ethiopia made an urgent appeal Friday for foreign aid, saying 4.5 million people face starvation in war-torn northern Ethiopia five years after an estimated 1 million people perished there in another famine. Ethiopia's high new figure included half a million people displaced from the rebel-occupied province of Tigre and 400,000 inhabitants of Asmara, Ethiopia's second-largest city, which has been recently cut off from the Red Sea port of Massawa.

The United Nations will spend millions of dollars developing Djibouti's port and roads this year in an effort to bring in enough food to avert famine in Ethiopia, officials said Saturday. Ethiopia's war with Eritrea has complicated the relief effort, and the Ethiopian government's refusal to permit the U.N. to ship food through the Eritrean port of Assab has forced the world organization to turn to Djibouti.

Shouldering his spade, Khassaye Negusse clambered out of the ditch he was helping dig for a water pipeline. There were 200 people busy around him, pouring concrete and excavating around a remote watercourse five miles from the nearest road. Like most of the others, explained Negusse, 65, he is a farmer, raising corn and wheat. It is an enterprise that has meant starvation in four of the last six years, when the rains in this rocky part of Eritrea have failed.
