What About Niger?

CNN has had these three articles in three days on the situation in Niger:

How the rich ignored Niger crisis (07.21.2005)
The costs of saving millions of people starving in Niger are rocketing because rich nations ignored calls for early intervention to avert the ravages of last year's drought, relief workers said on Wednesday.
Report: 3.6m face Niger starvation (07.21.2005)
About 3.6 million people face starvation in the West African nation of Niger unless the international community responds urgently to the food crisis there, the aid agency Oxfam said Thursday.
U.N.: 'Acute' crisis in Niger (07.19.2005)
The west African nation of Niger is suffering "an acute humanitarian crisis" in which children are dying because the world community ignored U.N. appeals for urgent aid, the U.N. humanitarian chief said Tuesday.

Fox, so far, has none.
