10,000 Somalis flee to Kenya !

 

Nairobi (AFP) 15th May 2002

Some ten thousand Somali civilians,mostly women and children, have fled fresh fighting in their country to Kenya over the past week,the UN Refugee Agency said Monday.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesman Jonathon Clayton said that the refugees were now in the border town of Mandera.

Somalis first began pouring into Mandera on last April and their numbers have since been growing on a daily basis .

" We thought that the skirmishes in April were localized and would end after a ceasefire, but the hostilities continued unabated and the refugees might stay here for a while," said Clayton .

The fighting in Somali's Gedo region ,bordering Ethiopia and Somalia, involves rival factions of the Somali National front .
