Cameron: Somalia making progress in ending conflict

Somalia is making real progress in trying to end more than two decades of conflict according to David Cameron.

He was hosting a conference in London with the Somali President to help rebuild the East African state.

Somali government forces have taken back the capital Mogadishu but the Islamist Al-Shabab group still controls significant areas of the country.

David Cameron has pledged nearly £80m ($124) in aid for Somalia for the next two years.

Andrew Harding reports from Mogadishu.
