The United Nations has warned that the drought hitting the Horn of Africa is set to worsen.

Anthony Lake, the director of the UN’s children agency, said two years of minimal rains have led to the current dire situation, predicting the coming months to be extremely tough.

Around 3,000 Somali refugees are arriving in the Dabaab camp – the world’s largest refugee camp – in northern Kenya every day. There are already 440,000 people at the site.
