Nicolas de Torrente, executive director of MSF-USA, Benoit Leduc, MSF operations manager for Somalia, and Dr. Greg Elder, MSF deputy operations manager, discuss the catastrophic humanitarian situation in Somalia. Somalis are trapped by ongoing conflict in their country. Conditions are worsening at a time when external assistance has plummeted sharply due to insecurity and increased targeting of aid workers.
