Floods Kill 3 Children in Somalia Refugee Camp

Floods in the Somalia port city of Kismayo have killed 3 people – all children – and left 100s homeless. The area has seen heavy rain and flooding for the last 7 days, Somali governmental officials said on Sunday 08 June 2014.

Those worst affected are from the internally displaced persons (IDPs) camps. The camps have little to no protection from flooding and many of the makeshift homes and constructions there have been washed away.

Flooding has also left many roads in the region impassable.
