(BBC): The UK has committed to giving an extra £375m to help feed the world's poorest children. The aid is part of a £2.7bn global agreement aimed at preventing millions of infant deaths. Prime Minister David Cameron led a high-level summit where delegates committed to supporting a historic reduction in "under-nutrition." Organisers of a rally in London said 45,000 people turned out calling for global leaders to end world hunger. Meanwhile, UK church leaders have called on the G8 to tackle tax avoidance by firms working in developing countries. As part of its G8 presidency, the event in central London aimed to get more funding from nations, companies and charities toward African countries' own nutrition plans.
