East Africa Famine

Amina Husein, a two-year-old malnourished child from southern Somalia awaits treatment in Banadir Hospital in Mogadishu, Somalia, Thursday, July 21, 2011. Thousands of people have arrived in Mogadishu fleeing drought and famine. Somalia’s 20-year-old civil war is partly to blame for turning the drought in the Horn of Africa into a famine. Analysts warned that aid agencies could be airlifting emergency supplies to the failed state 20 years from now unless the U.N.-backed government improves.
