Somalia: A year after famine declared

The United Nations is warning that hundreds of millions of pounds are needed to prevent another humanitarian disaster in Somalia.

A year ago, the UN declared a famine in parts of the country following a drought that affected a vast area of east Africa.

The BBC's Africa correspondent Andrew Harding, who reported on last year's famine, has been back to Somalia.
