JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The United Nations' food agency said on Wednesday it needed $220 million in funding to provide assistance to drought-hit Zimbabwe until March 2017.

The number of Zimbabweans requiring food aid has risen to 4 million, up from 3 million initially, as the southern African nation grapples with its worst drought in more than two decades.
