Leading charity warns of impending health crisis in Kenya

A leading charity is warning of a health emergency in Kenya, following a week of violence which has left more than 300 people dead.

British aid group Merlin said the medical situation will reach crisis-point in days.

It said that food and water supplies are running dangerously low and people are being forced to drink unsafe water.

The charity claims that if peace isn't restored within the next few days, the people of Kenya face disease and severe dehydration.
