One third of people in Afghanistan are facing hunger, the Rome-based United Nations World Food Programme tweeted on Tuesday - after the Taliban seized power in the war-ravaged country, plunging it into chaos.

"Despite mounting security and logistics challenges, WFP delivered food and nutrition assistance to 5.5 million people in Afghanistan in the first six months of 2021," read the tweet.

"By the end of this year, we hope to reach 14 million people - 1/3 of the population - who are facing hunger," the tweet added.
