Somalia: Other countries need to do more, says Cameron

Prime Minister David Cameron has said Britain is leading the way for contributing aid to Somalia, but "other countries need to step up to the plate" to do more to avert the crisis.

The UN on Wednesday said that parts of Somalia were suffering a famine after the worst drought in 60 years.

Some 10 million people are said to need food aid across East Africa but Somalia is by far the worst affected country, as there is no national government to co-ordinate aid after two decades of fighting.
