MOGADISHU Nike Air VaporMax Roze Nederland , April 12 (Xinhua) -- An outbreak of cholera acute watery diarrhoea (AWD) in Somalia's semi-autonomous regions of Somaliland and Puntland has killed over 85 people, a global charity said Wednesday.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said 28 people were killed in the last ten days and 167 others hospitalized in Somaliland alone.

In neighboring Puntland, more than 1,600 cases of choleraAWD with 57 deaths have been recorded since January, the charity said in a statement.

Julie Hall Nike Air VaporMax Wit Nederland , IFRC Director of Health, said during the 2011 famine in Somalia, tens of thousands of people suffering from hunger died from preventable and treatable diseases like diarrhoea.

"What often stands between hunger and death is disease. We must move quickly to stop the spread of disease and provide those affected with treatment. Diseases haunt those who are hungry -- we can fight this," said Hall.

The charity said the outbreak has overwhelmed remote communities in drought-ravaged region. More than 411 cases of choleraAWD have been reported in Somaliland since the beginning of April.

The vulnerable children and adults, already struggling to cope with malnutrition and food insecurity caused in large part by the failure of 2016's two rainy seasons Nike Air VaporMax Grijs Nederland , were struck down by the deadly disease after drinking contaminated water.

"This outbreak is frightening, as the people of Somaliland are already weakened by the drought and by lack of food," said Abdirasaq Ali Duran, Somaliland Tracing Assistant of Somali Red Crescent Society at Buhodle sub-branch.

IFRC said it was preparing to expand its support to the Somali Red Crescent Society, building on its existing emergency operation as part of the life-saving efforts.

The outbreak has come amid food crisis in Somalia that is growing more serious by the day with over 6.2 million people in need urgent humanitarian assistance Nike Air VaporMax Rood Nederland , 2.9 million people facing crisis and emergency levels of food insecurity, and 363,000 children already suffering from acute malnutrition.

HAIKOU, March 17 (Xinhua) -- England's Georgia Hall fired a six-under 67 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the SGF67 World Golf Ladies Championship with SBS.

HANOI, July 3 (Xinhua) -- Since its opening in Brazil last June 12 the World Cup 2014 has dazzled millions of football fanatics around the world Nike Air VaporMax Blauw Nederland , including those from Vietnam.

"Although I cannot deny that watching football matches has caused several troubles in my daily life for lack of sleep, the World Cup games gave me and other Vietnamese fans great joy," said Dang Tien Dung, a Hanoi citizen.

According to a 32-year-old businessman, he did not really mind the inconvenience during the day since he enjoyed watching the games on television even deep into the night.

Due to the difference in time zone Nike Air VaporMax Heren Nederland , World Cup matches are broadcast on television here from 23:00 to 5:00 o'clock local time.

"Some of my customers who spent the night watching football had to delay their appointments with me since they are tired in the morning," said Dung.

Dung said that since the World Cup comes only every four years, he must savor every minute of the games played by his favorite teams in various venues in Brazil. "It's really an exhilarating feeling to watch the matches," he said.

Another Brazilian football team fanatic, Phan Hai Ninh Nike Air VaporMax Zwart Nederland , 38, a Vietnamese yoga teacher, has her own way of supporting her favorite team.

"I eat more and sleep less just to watch the World Cup games but I am not complaining. It's actually more fun," Ninh said.

She said everyone in the family shares her passion for soccer. "My husband pauses from his doctoral thesis while my son temporarily suspends his preparation for the entrance exams to secondary school. My daughter even misses her drawing classes," Ninh said.

"If I need to go out with friends or meet with business partners in the evening Nike Air VaporMax Dames Nederland , instead of wearing sparkling dresses or gorgeous makeup, I put on a T-shirt of a team which plays on that day and remember to come home early to watch the match," the yoga teacher said.

Nguyen Thi Thinh, a communication officer in the southern economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City, told Xinhua that she and her husband watch the World Cup games in a coffee shop Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Nederland , drinking beer and cheering for their favorite team.

"Naturally if the team that we root for loses we feel a little bit sad but that's the way it is: ther.
