Somali refugees urge Kenya not to close Dadaab camp

Elders want government to reconsider decision to relocate world’s largest refugee camp, housing 500,000 people.

Somalis living in Kenya’s Dadaab refugee camp are asking the government to reconsider its decision to close it.

The Kenyan government has given the UN three months to move the camp into Somalia.

The move comes only days after fighters of al-Shabab, the Somali-based armed group, killed 148 people at Garissa University in Kenya.

Dadaab refugee camp is the world’s largest, sheltering around 500,000 Somali refugees who fled civil war in their country.

Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Adow reports from the camp.
