Representative Mervyn Dymally discussed the famine and civil war in Somalia after a recent fact finding mission there. He described the desperate situation with famine and homelessness in the troubled country. He compared it with similar famines in Sudan and Ethiopia and pointed out the lack of government and the chaotic control in the country by the various armed factions. He then answered viewers' questions on famine elsewhere in Africa, future trade to Africa from America and Europe and whether spending should be better spent in the U.S. to deal with domestic issues. close
