The government is accusing the opposition, but the OLF is not involved in these attacks�. No one has claimed responsibility.

Update on the East Africa food crisis - 9 May 2006
ReliefWeb (press release), Switzerland - May 9, 2006

Oxfam is now helping more than 500,000 people in Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.

Recent rains in some areas have increased the risk of disease and are hampering the delivery of aid. Oxfam is now helping more than 500,000 people in Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, and Ethiopia. Here is an update on our programs ...
