In the north-eastern section of the border town of Dolo there are 3 small concentrations of likely informal shelters, numbering 75 in total which were erected between 26 October 2010 and 17 July 2011. The average size of these probable shelters is relatively small (<10m2) and informally built on marginal land at the northern edge of town, and thus could represent locations of Somali refugees. This is a preliminary assessment and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT at the contact information below. Additional reports will be produced as new imagery becomes available.
