Somalia: Three Children Die in Floods

At least three young children died in flash floods caused by heavy rains in Somalia's south-western Gedo region, according to residents on Monday.

Hours-long of heavy rainfall triggered flash floods that left three children dead in Garbaharey town, the regional capital of Gedo region.

Gedo region is one of the most drought-hit areas in south-western regions of Somalia duo to the lack of sufficient rains for almost two consecutive years.

Hunger and thirty have killed hundreds of people and livestock in Somalia as the main water source of Shabelle river coming from noghbouring Ethiopia dried up.
