Illness strikes refugee camps in Somalia
by UPI

MOGADISHU - Tens of thousands of refugees who fled increased violence in Somalia's capital of Mogadishu now face a tenuous future in regional camps.

Refugees are dealing with rampant disease in camps outside the capital as regional violence continues, The U.N. Integrated Regional Information Networks said.

A civil society task force official said the camps are still seen by many as a safer alternative to Mogadishu.

Renewed fighting erupted in the capital Tuesday night, the Shabelle Media Network reported.

Camp officials have said increasing numbers of children are contracting illnesses daily.

IRIN said the refugees' concerns come as regional clan elders reported that 1,086 people have died and 4,344 have been wounded as a result of the fighting.
