Horn of Africa drought sparks mass exodus

The Horn of Africa is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years.
In Somalia, about 800,000 people have left the countryside to seek help in camps, having lost their animals and crops.
There, they joined hundreds of thousands of people who were displaced by previous droughts.
With rising fears that it will become increasingly difficult to maintain livestock in the countryside, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation is helping some of the internally displaced to turn to fishing off of Somalia's 3,000km (1,864-mile) coastline.
Al Jazeera’s Malcolm Webb reports from the port city of Kismayo.
