Aid agencies working in the world's largest refugee camp in Kenya say they are running out of funds, putting tens of thousands of lives at risk.

Eight organisations, including Oxfam and Save the Children, say they are facing a shortfall of $25 million, but that the need is greater than ever.

The population at Dadaab, which lies near the Somali border, has increased by a third over the past year.

It is now home to almost half a million people.
