A Somali mother holds her severely malnourished child from southern Somalia in Banadir hospital, Mogadishu, Somalia, Tuesday, July 12, 2011, after fleeing from southern Somalia. 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. U.N. officials sounded the alarm Tuesday about a deepening crisis in East Africa, saying they are struggling to cope with the number of people on the move in the region because of the severe drought and continued fighting in Somalia.
