With Oxfam in crisis after it was revealed staff in Haiti used prostitutes, CNN has uncovered evidence that Western aid money is being used to directly fund terrorist groups.

A long-running investigation has revealed that money given directly by the United Nations to people displaced by conflict and famine in Africa is ending up in the hands of al-Qa’eda affiliate al-Shabaab.

Former members of the group and Somali intelligence agents have described how it is making thousands of dollars a day, amounting to millions of dollars a year, through extortion at road blocks and taxes on merchants trying to transport food and supplies to displaced people.

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.
