Somalia BBC & Turkish PM Erdogan visits Mogadishu

Turkish PM Erdogan visits Mogadishu

Foreign visitors to Mogadishu are a rarity, but since al-Shabab recently made what it called a tactical withdrawal from the capital, a few international politicians have come to see for themselves the thousands of famine victims pouring into the city.
