    Years of violence have left their mark on the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

    But a recent offensive by African Union troops and soldiers from Somalia's Transitional Federal Government has forced most of the al-Shabaab rebel fighters out of the city, creating some space for much needed economic development.

    Traders and families have begun moving back to rebuild lives deeply affected by al-Shabaab's siege on the city.

    Peter Greste reports from Mogadishu's Bakhara Market.
