Refugees in Kenya seek water

Thousands of refugees flood into Dadaab camp in Kenya, in search of water amid Horn of Africa's worsening drought.

    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.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Garissa in northeast Kenya, where he met one family struggling to survive.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
