Holding their utensils, Somalis from southern Mogadishu, wait to receive food at a camp in Mogadishu, Wednesday, July 13, 2011, distributed by a local NGO. Thousands of people have arrived in Mogadishu over the past two weeks seeking assistance and the number is increasing by the day, due to lack of water and food. The drought in the Horn of Africa has sparked a severe food crisis and high malnutrition rates, with parts of Kenya and Somalia experiencing pre-famine conditions, the United Nations has said. More than 10 million people are now affected in drought-stricken areas of Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Uganda and the situation is deteriorating. (AP Photo Mohamed Sheikh Nor ) less
