HIGHLIGHTS

  • New study shows that over a quarter of a million people died from food insecurity and famine between late 2010 and early 2012 and underlines the need to heed early warnings.

  • Seasonal rains bring relief, but localized flooding displaces 50,000 people and kills seven.

  • Somalis return home from neighbouring countries albeit at slow pace. About 16,000 people have returned from Kenya in 2013.
