CNN live from Somalia

CNN correspondent Nima Elbagir (@NimaCNN) is in Mogadishu, Somalia covering the famine crisis as well as the offensive Somali government forces launched against al Qaeda-affiliated militant group Al-Shabaab Thursday morning.

“Tens of thousands of people fled the Somali capital of Mogadishu because of the violence and insecurity here. They’re now having to come back seeking refuge from the famine that hit them in those areas they fled to, and it seems that that violence is following them,” Elbagir says.
