University opens at refugee camp in Kenya

Kenyatta University becomes the first to open a campus in a refugee camp, offering classes to Somalis in Dadaab.

    Kenya's Dadaab refugee camp is home to nearly half a million Somalis - now it's also home to the world's first refugee university. Courses are being taught by Kenyatta University as a way to create more opportunities for those living there. 

    Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Dadaab.
