Somali farmers fear returning home

Many farmers fear going back home amid lack of lacks of funds and presence of al-Shabab fighters on their land.



    It is now raining in parts of Somalia for the first time in years, a time when crucial crops should be planted.

    But farmers are among the hundreds of thousands of displaced people in Mogadishu, the capital.

    Many fear going back because of a lack of money and security, with the armed group al-Shabab now controlling many of the areas from where they had fled.

    Without a harvest, the Somali people will continue to rely on outside help for years to come.
