Global leaders meet in London to discuss future of Somalia, terrorism
At a conference in London, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined senior delegates to agree to a seven-point plan to address the instability, famine and violence in Somalia which has resulted from a two-decade civil war.
Of particular concern to leaders is the continued presence of al-Qaeda, which controls large areas of country.
“That fatalism has failed Somalia and it has failed the international community, too. So today we have an unprecedented opportunity to change that and I believe there is real momentum right now,” said British Prime Minster David Cameron told the conference attendees.
