Somalis flee to Kenya in search of food

(Al Jazeera) Al Jazeera gains access to Somali border town where thousands of refugees facing starvation are trying to get to Kenya.

Somali refugees have become the victims of the worst drought to hit the Horn of Africa in nearly 60 years.

Faced with starvation and caught in conflict, thousands of Somalis are fleeing their country and heading for Kenya.

They have travelled through harsh conditions with little food or water, and no humanitarian assistance.

Many head across the border into northern Kenya to seek help at the Dadaab refugee camp.

But drought has hit almost every country in the Horn of Africa.

Somalis have been fleeing from war for years now, but this is a different kind of exodus. The refugees are forced to leave their land because they risk dying of starvation at home.
