An aid worker says North Korea could be facing another deadly famine unless foreign donors resume food supplies.

The supplies were cut off because of the current nuclear stand-off.

"The people are living on the edge. It doesn't need much until we could slip back into the hunger of 1995-1997," Kathi Zellweger of the charity Caritas Hong Kong said.
