Four million Kenyans will need humanitarian relief next month, UNICEF estimates, in the worst drought so far this century.

Researchers have found that in 2016 hot weather was made more likely by global warming, which worsened the effects of low rainfall.

Kenya’s Met Office is forecasting depressed rainfall across much of the country again this rainy season, which runs March to May. When rains fail, it hits crop production and food security, reports Hadra Ahmed from Nairobi.

The Kenyan government has allocated US$103 million to the emergency and the Red Cross is appealing for a further $9m.
