U.K. charities boost Somalia aid
Relief operations have been constrained by the security situation in Somalia. But Islamist militant group al-Shabab last week announced it was lifting a ban on foreign aid organizations because of the severity of the drought.
The U.K.'s Disasters Emergency Committee has launched an appeal after severe drought in the Horn of Africa. The Disasters Emergency Committee said Somalia, where there has been no national government for 20 years, was one of the hardest places in the world to deliver aid.
