Somalis abroad
It is not known how many Somalis live abroad, but estimates suggest between one and three million, among them some 400,000 refugees. Somalis form one of the world's largest groups of refugees - most of them are in Kenya, Yemen and the UK. There are also large Somali communities in Canada, Scandinavia and the Netherlands.
