Six months after donors poured money and aid into the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, aid groups are warning the situation remains dire.

Dadaab is the world’s biggest refugee settlement, sheltering almost 500,000 Somalis who have fled across the border.

Al Jazeera's Peter Greste is the first journalist to visit the camp since October, when all "non-lifesaving activities" were halted within the camps due to the deteriorating security situation.

He filed this report from Dadaab, Kenya.
