Somalia's president has condemned the recent attack on a Kenyan mall that left scores dead, and called for more help to battle al-Shabab fighters in the country.

Hasan Sheikh Mohamud described the group as a regional threat that must be fought politically and economically.

Al Jazeera's Peter Greste reports from Mogadishu, where victims of al-Shabab voiced their sympathy for victims of the mall siege.
