According to one former al-Shabaab ‘tax collector’ who now works for the security services, the terror group would take around $3 per bag of rice delivered by aid agencies.

Western aid agencies have a troubled history in the region. In the 1990s, some paid warlords to gain access to hundreds of thousands of people who had been deliberately starved.

This strategy only made matters worse, as warlords worked to keep the famine going in order to keep aid money flowing.
