LONDON (Reuters) - The United Nations is seeking a further $900 million (697.13 million pounds) this year for Somalia, where more than 6 million people need humanitarian assistance and 275,000 malnourished children are at risk of starvation, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Thursday.

"This morning we presented the revised humanitarian response plan seeking an additional $900 million to the end the year," Guterres said in opening remarks to an international conference on Somalia hosted by British Prime Minister Theresa May.
