UNICEF adviser discusses East Africa drought

As thousands of refugees arrive in Kenyan town of Dabaab daily, no end to the crisis is in sight.

    Millions of people in Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and Djibouti are at risk of starvation. No rain means no harvests and no food - at least until some time next year, according to the UN.

    Thousands of refugees are arriving at a refugee camp on the Kenya-Somalia border, in Dabaab, daily.

    Robert McCarthy, an emergency adviser to UNICEF, speaks to Al Jazeera from Nairobi, Kenya, on the humanitarian crisis.
