Somali kids

(December 12, 2013)

The BBC Arabic does a show called "Ana al-Shaahid", or "I am the witness." People send in their videos of issues around their communities.

One of the videos this time was sent in by a Somali man. He was interviewing children in his homeland who are addicted to sniffing glue. I could not really keep up, because they were speaking Somali with Arabic subtitles, and I am a slow Arabic reader. A lot of the kids seem to be orphans, or their parents are cruel and abusive.

The ones featured seemed to be mostly eight or nine years old.
