'Face of 1984 famine' returns to clinic

In 1984, one little girl, Birhan Woldu, became the face of the the Ethiopian famine when a news crew found her apparently dying.

But she survived, and in 2005 she made an appearance on stage at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park.

To mark 25 years since the famine, Birhan returned to the St Vincent De Paul Clinic where nurses saved her life.
