Displacement camp on the front line in Somalia

Famine in parts of Somalia is forcing families to flee their homes and head to the violent capital Mogadishu in search of food.

The BBC's Will Ross has been to visit a displacement camp, set up less than 400 metres away from the front line of the fighting on the edge of the city.

Details of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) East Africa Crisis Appeal can be found at DEC.org.uk or call 0370 60 60 900 to donate.
