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

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

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

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

    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.
