A “bitter winter” looms for millions of people in Afghanistan, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has said, as the country is gripped by food shortages.Around 22.8 million people, or 55 percent of Afghanistan’s population, are experiencing high levels of food shortages, according to the IFRC, after a severe drought crippled food production.The IFRC said it was providing 3,000 tonnes of food relief for 210,000 people. Winter survival kits were being delivered by the Afghan Red Crescent in some of the hardest-hit provinces, they said.This year, almost 700,000 people have been internally displaced, the IFRC said, joining some 3.5 million people who have already been forced from their homes by conflict, hunger and drought.Mawlawi Mutiul Haq Khales, the Afghan Red Crescent’s acting president, said: "Millions of people are struggling to survive due to wholescale crop losses, acute food shortages, and a lack of cash to buy basic necessities.“Afghan Red Crescent teams have not stopped helping people with relief and healthcare, but the vast majority of families remain unassisted, lacking adequate food provisions, money for the very basic needs and survival kits to get through the harsh winter months ahead.”Video released by the IFRC shows food distribution at its Kabul base.

Day four of Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial took place in New York City on Thursday, December 2, with Maxwell facing charges of conspiring with Jeffery Epstein to facilitate the grooming and sexual abuse of minors.The fourth day of the trial focused on the grooming of victims – the center of the sex-trafficking charges against Maxwell – the New York Times reported. Variations of the word “grooming” appeared nine times in her federal indictment, according to the New York Times.On Thursday, expert witness Dr Lisa Rocchio told jurors that “childhood sexual abuse is a process” that begins with the selection of the victim and escalates through trust-building and desensitization.Prosecutors have accused Maxwell of initiating the grooming process by introducing young girls to Epstein, posing as a mentor figure, and allegedly giving the girls explicit sexual advice.Videos taken outside the Southern District of New York Courthouse show Teresa Helm, an alleged victim of Maxwell and Epstein, and lawyers arriving to the trial on Thursday morning.

The "COV-Boost" study was cited by British officials when they announced that Pfizer and Moderna were preferred for use in the country's booster campaign, but the data has only been made publicly available now. The study found that six of the seven boosters examined enhanced immunity after initial vaccination with Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine, while all seven increased immunity when given after two doses of AstraZeneca's vaccine.
