While the world focuses its attention on the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons, one tragic fact is being neglected: An increasing number of Syrian people are dying of hunger.

The latest issue of the Beijing-based bi-weekly magazine Global People carried an editorial urging more attention be given to the growing humanitarian disaster in the Middle East country.

Before the "Arab Spring" reached Syria, there was no need to worry about food or clothing. However, as the regional unrest has spread, the country, which used to be self-sufficient in feeding its people, is under the growing threat of famine.
