UNHCR to Relocate Somali Refugees

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) says it wants to relocate Somali refugees in Kenya, citing over-crowdedness.

UNHCR deputy commissioner, Craig Johnstone points out that the camp in which the refugees are living hosts more than double the number required.

He says the refugee population has grown rapidly in the past two years despite Kenya closing its border with Somalia two years ago.
