Mary Robinson to visit Somalia


July 19, 2011
Former President and UN High Commissioner Mary Robinson is travelling to Somalia today for the first time since her 1992 visit brought famine and war there to worldwide attention.

Before crossing from Kenya into Somalia, Mrs Robinson told RTÉ News that she was extremely concerned about the growing seriousness of famine in the country and said world leaders needed to take greater action to ease the crisis.

The United Nations is expected to declare officially tomorrow that there is a famine in parts of Somalia.

Mrs Robinson is returning to Somalia with representatives of Trocáire, Concern and Oxfam Ireland.
