The Horn of Africa is experiencing its worst drought in 60 years.
UN officials say it has killed tens of thousands of people over the past few months, and has forced desperate survivors to walk for weeks in search of food and water. Altogether, more than 12 million people are at risk of starvation.
The UN is preparing to airlift food aid into the region, but flights are being delayed by administrative complications.
Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports on the crisis.
