The Italian edition of Vanity Fair has found George Hussein Onyango Obama — the youngest half-brother of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois — living in poverty in a hut in Huruma, Kenya, just outside Nairobi.

"Huruma is a tough place, last January during the elections there was rioting and six people were hacked to death," George Obama told the magazine. "The police don’t even arrest you they just shoot you. I have seen two of my friends killed. I have scars from defending myself with my fists. I am good with my fists."

We took a look at Sen. Obama’s branch-y family tree in in July.
