As the situation in East Africa continues to worsen, here are a number of links outlining the current situation:

News reports from the BBC outline a famine spreading across Somalia and the first deaths from starvation in Kenya (although no official famine has been announced there).

The UNOCHA pages outline the latest information and details, with maps, details of appeals and other information. 

Follow Oxfam and a number of other bloggers as they blog about the crisis in the Horn of Africa for the next 48 hours.
