A leaked document revealed that parts of the country are still insecure

BRITAIN is donating more than half a billion pounds to war-ravaged Somalia – despite concluding there is a "certain” risk the funds could be snapped up by terrorists.

A leaked document highlights the risks of taxpayers’ cash being "misused by listed terror groups or criminal gangs”.

The confidential Department for International Development report says large parts of Somalia are still insecure and the notorious al-Shabaab group "appears to have had a resurgence”.

But the UK is still dishing out £568.4million for the drought-stricken African country.

Labour MP Ian Austin said he planned to question ministers about the funding.

He said: "Taxpayers will be horrified to find their money is going to terrorists at a time when police forces here are having budgets cut and officers are losing their jobs.”

IS or Daesh have stretched their tentacles into Somalia now after seizing control of a town in the Puntland region almost two months ago.

Drought in Somalia What are we waiting for? NGOs Call for Action

By the 15th of November 2016, the rains in Somalia were roughly 1 month late. The past two seasonal rains (Deyr 2015, Gu 2016) have varied regionally, however the general trend has been that the Deyr 2015 rains were strong, but ended a month early, leading to a longer dry season in early 2016. The Gu 2016 rains were strong in late April and early May, but ended abruptly causing crop failures in Southern-most regions. Evidence and feedback from the field show that the drought is wide-spread in Puntland, Somaliland, and most parts of the southern and central regions, including Hiraan,Galgaduud, Gedo, Lower Shabele, Mudug and Jubaland.
