Somalia Polio

FILE-- In this Wednesday April 24, 2013 file photo a Somali baby receives a polio vaccine, at the Medina Maternal Child Health center in Mogadishu, Somalia. The U.N.'s humanitarian affairs office says a polio outbreak in Somalia is spreading. The U.N. said Friday Aug. 16, 2013, that Somalia has 105 confirmed cases of polio, with another 10 cases confirmed in neighbouring Kenya. Health officials are responding with vaccination campaigns that have reached 4 million people since the outbreak began in May, but those health officials cannot access about 600,000 children who live in areas of Somalia controlled by the al-Qaida-linked militant group al-Shabab.
