Mismanaging the Famine in Somalia

Flickr/Internews Network
Matt Bryden, coordinator of the United Nations Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group, wrote in October 2011 a brief for the Enough Project on the criminality and mishandling of the famine in Somalia.

He excoriated the extremist group, al-Shabaab, for denying Somali famine victims the opportunity to migrate in search of food and for banning the most effective aid agencies from working in areas it controls. He also condemned the Transitional Federal Government for permitting gross corruption that prevents it from discharging its duties.
