Help

The UK's international development secretary said the international community was pulling in the same direction to help Somalia.

Andrew Mitchell said the militant Islamist group Al Shabab - recently forced out of the capital Mogadishu - was a "barrier to progress in Somalia".

He spoke as representatives from 50 countries meet in London to find a solution to conflict in the country, including David Cameron, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
