More than 13 million people facing starvation in Ethiopia and Sudan will need 1.5 million tons of food aid in 1992 despite higher-than-average harvests this year, a U.N. agency said Monday.

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said 6.1 million drought victims, displaced people and demobilized soldiers and their families in Ethiopia will need 880,000 tons of emergency food.
