STORIES: Somalia: The girls of Mogadishu are heading back to the beach: Dadaab, the largest refugee camp in the world

Africa, Kenya, Dadaab. 29/02/2016.  Dadaab remains the largest refugee camp in the world, with more than 350,000 inhabitants, 95% of them from Somalia. Located in a semi-arid region of Kenya, 80 km from the Somali border, the camp arose in the Nineties to contain the displaced fleeing from the civil war in Somalia, and has continued to expand since then. Today it is composed of 5 large tent cities spread over more than 50 km. The absence of prospects for the future arrivals seeping across the border with Somalia have made Dadaab a hotbed for Al-Shabaab terrorism, and it was from here that the Jihad commando set out to perpetrate the Garissa University College campus massacre in 2014.
