Some 260,000 people died in Somalia as a result of a drought between 2010 to 2012

Five million Somalis are facing hunger due to failed rains, floods and continued displacement in the country.

Of those, 1.1 million require urgent assistance, according to a new survey by the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).

Malnutrition levels have also increased dramatically over the last six months with more than 300,000 children under the age of five affected, it says.
