    Millions of Somali lives are already at stake from the devastating drought that has hit the Horn of Africa, said to be the worst in 60 years.

    Now, doctors say a possible cholera epidemic could be on hand due to over-crowded conditions in refugee camps, poor hygiene and lack of basic medical supplies.
