Rich crop fields are sprouting up across Southern Somalia after heavy rains brought an end to a prolonged drought in the region.
According to the UN, this season's crop harvest is expected to be the country's best in seven years.
About 500,000 Somalis, who have had to rely on UN food handouts, are expected to have enough to eat.
And al-Shabab, an Islamic anti-government group that holds power over much of Southern Somalia, is claiming some credit for the increased food production.
