A doctor pinches the skin of a severely-malnourished Somali child at Dagahaley camp in Dadaab in Kenya's northeastern province, June 3, 2009. Islamists briefly re-took an area of Mogadishu on Wednesday in street battles that killed 14 people, wounded dozens more, and added to an exodus of residents from the coastal Somali capital, residents said.
