Cholera outbreak kills Four children in Somalia

A Somali official says four children died while dozens were admitted to hospital following a cholera outbreak in Mahaday district of Middle Shabelle province.

Speaking to Radio Shabelle, Mahaday district commissioner Ahmed Hussein Afrah has confirmed the deaths, saying the disease effected hundreds as the drought crisis deepens.

Mr Afrah said the small rural villages located outside the town could be just as vulnerable to the outbreak due to lack of sufficient medicines and hospitals in the southern region.
