AU urges unity against al-Shabaab

Summit in Uganda will for the next three days tackle the crisis in Somalia.

    More than 30 African heads of state have gathered for an African Union summit in Kampala, the Ugandan capital.

    The leaders urged for a united front against al-Shabaab, a Somali-based group responsible for a recent bombing in Kampala that claimed 70 civilian lives.

    But some warn that upping the fight with al-Shabaab could play into the groups' hands.

    Andrew Simmons reports from Kampala.
