FOR RELEASE WITH FEATURE BC-UZBEKISTAN HUNGER - Zhupargul, a
51-year-old mother of 11, holds a dish with bread, her main food for
the last two years, inside her house at Khabibulayevo farm some 60 kms
north of Nukus, in eastern Uzbekistan's vast and poverty-stricken
Karakalpakstan region. On a recent visit to a Red Cross food
distribution point 50 kms from Nukus, crowds of people had walked over
10 kms from the collective farm which cannot feed them to collect huge
sacks full of cooking oil, rice, flour and salt. Picture taken March
