Doctors fear cholera outbreak in Somalia

Health experts say poor hygiene and lack of medical supplies could lead to the spread of cholera.

    Millions of Somali lives are already at stake from the devastating drought that has hit the Horn of Africa, said to be the worst in 60 years.

    Now, doctors say a possible cholera epidemic could be on hand due to over-crowded conditions in refugee camps, poor hygiene and lack of basic medical supplies.
