A refugee child from Somalia attends a class at Hagadera refugee camp at Dadaab in Kenya's northeastern province. Somalis fleeing war and hunger at home are pouring into these camps in neighboring Kenya, a refugee settlement with over 300,000 refugees. Somalia had been mired in violence, lacking effective central government since the 1991 overthrow of military dictator Mohammed Said Barre, resulting in clan-based fiefdoms in the country.
