Hi Wallflower, apparently "Famine" is the worst designation you can have and the U.N. are powerless to act. The extract I watched was very upsetting
and one scene showed a Family who had left Somalia, the Mother just having given birth . The baby died and had to be buried under a Stone.

On Radio 4 this morning, someone said that people are dying in Somalia and all we're getting on the news is Rupert Murdoch.

Yes AnnaEsse, they are flocking to Kenya, which frankly is not offering much help and apart from the Famine the temperature is in the 30s and they have
no shelter from the Sun.
