Doctors race to get aid to starving Somali children: Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports

Hundreds of thousands of Somalis refugees have been pouring into eastern Kenya seeking humanitarian aid and medical attention despite efforts to alleviate drought and famine conditions in the southern part of Somalia.

More than 29,000 children have died over the past few months in what has become the most acute food security emergency on Earth, and the UN estimates that about 3.6 million people in Somalia are at risk of starving.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins American Morning live from the Dadaab refugee camp in northern Kenya, the largest in the world, to discuss the crisis and to explain what measures are being taken to get food and medical aid to the refugees.
