[Kenya] Drought which is once again ravaging northern Kenya has killed 71 of Sheikh Issa's herd of 85 cows, leaving the 61-year-old virtually penniless as he herds the last few to water at Arbajahan borehole, 110 miles north-west of provincial capital Wajir. Aid agencies are calling for a massive scaling up of food hand-outs to stop famine sweeping through the land. [Date picture taken: February 2006]
