Somalia famine camp children at risk of hyena attack

The United Nations has said that the famine in East Africa has spread to another region of Somalia and that 750,000 people are at risk of dying by the end of the year.

Tens of thousands of people have already died in countries across the region. Somalia has been particularly badly hit because of the internal conflict.

The BBC's Bashkas Jugsooday, who is currently in Dadaab camp, said wildlife was also suffering and children were at risk of being attacked by hyenas at night.
