Somalia warns of famine

Somalia’s political leaders on Tuesday called on aid agencies, the international community and donor countries to respond to what they described as “a very alarming drought situation.”

During an emergency meeting in Mogadishu, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said the drought situation in Somalia in some areas has turned into a “famine.”

At the end of the meeting, the leaders appointed a new National Drought Committee.

More than a quarter of a million people died in the famine in Somalia between October 2010 and April 2012.

Somali Government officials at the time accused the international community for not acting quickly enough to save lives
