Clip: 02/11/2016 | 6m 55s

Established by the U.N. in 1991 to house Somalis fleeing their civil war, the Dadaab refugee camp complex in eastern Kenya has grown into the largest in the world. Some call it a humanitarian disaster, but to its half-million residents, it is both their last resort and their home. Judy Woodruff talks to Ben Rawlence, author of “City of Thorns,” an inside look at stories of survival in Dadaab.
