Somalia marks one year of elected parliament

Country faces security challenges as it marks first anniversary of elected government.

    Somalia is marking its first anniversary with a functioning parliament. Last year, it elected leaders for the first time in 20 years, ending a UN backed transitional period.

    But one year on, Somalia face many challenges, including reducing widespread violence allegedly by al-Shabab fighters, who are on a mission to assassinate officials after the government recently seized much territory from the armed group.
