Tsunami Victims in Somalia Overlooked BBC Video

"The world is helping the tsunami victims generously, but not those who live outside areas of tourist attraction. My region is facing severe food shortage," pleaded Mohamed Said, the mayor of the Somali island town of Hafuun, a poverty-stricken Indian Ocean island about 42 kilometres off the Somali mainland.

The biggest problem for the lack of aid is that Somalia's ever changing government and safety is a huge issue.
