A MALNOURISHED NORTH KOREAN CHILD IN CHONGJIN.
A child suffering from malnutrition sits on the floor of Sunam nursery in Chongjin, North Korea's third largest city, May 6. Local doctors estimate that over 50 percent of children at the nursery are underweight and stunted, and many of them may grow up physically and mentally retarded. North Korea has been suffering from famine since 1995, and is entering some of the leanest months of the year, as the country waits for the summer harvest. Industrial cities in the northeastern parts of the country, which have to sustain large populations on little arable land, are some of the worst-hit areas.

NORTH KOREANS WORK AT ALTERNATIVE FOOD PLANT IN NORTH KOREA.
A state plant in North Korea's northeastern city of Chongjin May 6 produce "alternative food," the only kind of food distributed by the state Public Distribution System to the general population in May and June - the leanest months of the year. Officials said the "alternative food" consisted of 50 percent wheat, 20 percent corn cobs, 20 percent tree leaves and 10 percent grass. The U.N. World Food Programme says "alternative food" is simply a stomach filler that can cause severe digestive problems for the elderly and young.

NORTH KOREAN CHILDREN AT A CHONGJIN NURSERY.
Three children, at least two of them suffering from malnutrition, play at a nursery in the northeastern North Korean city of Chongjin May 6. North Korean officials said since the United Nation World Food Programme started supplying the nursery with food in July 1997 the health of many children had improved although some youngsters remained malnourished or stunted by five years of famine.
