United Nations has warned that Somalia is heading towards a famine as the country faces its worst drought in at least four decades.

The UN’s humanitarian coordinator for the country, Adam Abdelmoula said, the international community must act now or more people will die.

He said the country was on the brink of devastating and widespread hunger and mass starvation that could claim hundreds of lives.

Four consecutive rainy seasons have failed and the UN estimates the ensuing severe drought has affected seven million people and displaced more than 800,000.
