Kenya: Forest combed for squatters

Officials have started combing Kenya’s largest woodland, the Mau forest, to ensure squatters have left after a deadline for their eviction expired. Many of its rivers, which supply vital water, have dried up and the government wants to restore the eco-system. Most of the region’s 20,000 families have left their farms officials say. But according to BBC, many had nowhere else to go and are now living in squalid and desperate conditions on the forest boundaries.
