Progress in Somalia 'remarkable' - UK PM David Cameron

UK Prime Minister David Cameron says Somalia has made "remarkable" progress in efforts to end more than two decades of conflict.

He is co-hosting a conference in London with Somalia's President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to help the East African state rebuild itself.

The meeting follows similar conferences last year amid growing international concern that Somalia has turned into a haven for al-Qaeda-linked militants.

Mr Cameron said the progress made since the first conference was "remarkable" but that huge challenges still remained.
