Somali refugees at Dadaab camp

Two people have been killed at the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya as rioting broke out over the demolition of illegal food–distribution structures.

The camp was constructed 20 years ago to house refugees fleeing the conflict in Somalia. Now it is home to some 370,000 people.

Emmanuel Nyabera is a spokesman for the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) in Kenya.

He was recently in the camp and told Gerry Adams when the refugees decided to build the unauthorized structures, the Kenyan authorities stepped in.
