Ghana's Jerry Rawlings moved by Somalia suffering

Help

The African Union's High Representative for Somalia, Ghana's former President Jerry Rawlings, has arrived in Mogadishu on his first visit to the country since his appointment in October last year.

The United Nations has declared famine in parts of Somalia and it has entered talks with the Islamist al-Shabab militia to safeguard the distribution of food aid in areas that they control.

Mr Rawlings visited a camp for those forced from their homes by the drought and audibly upset, he spoke to the BBC's Hassan Arouni about what he saw.
