BRUSSELS , July 27, 2007 – The European Commission said Friday that it had allocated 10 million euros (13.6 million dollars) to Somalia to help people affected by civil strife and extreme weather conditions.

The aid will be used to provide better food and food security, cleaner water and sanitation, and health services -- mainly in central and southern areas -- the European Union's executive arm said in a statement.

"For the past 16 years, instability and conflict in Somalia have generated overwhelming humanitarian needs," Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Louis Michel said.

"The suffering has been exacerbated by worsening weather patterns, cyclical droughts interspersed with serious flooding, and a series of epidemics."
