Hope blooms for family in 'peaceful' Somalia

Impoverished but determined Mogadishu family sees its destiny tied to restive country's well-being.

    Al Jazeera has launched a series of reports called "One Year, Four Families" that looks back at some of this year's major stories as seen through the eyes of the people who experienced them.

    Somalia has been wracked by decades of internal conflict, but new hope blossomed with the election of a new president earlier this year.

    In the last part of the series, Peter Greste spoke to one Somali family struggling for survival in Mogadishu.
