Somalia struggles to feed starving

Mogadishu charity struggles to help millions in need after most aid groups leave country.

    The United Nations says almost four million Somalis - about half of the country's population - need emergency food aid.

    However, most aid organisations have pulled out of the country because of threats from al-Shabab fighters.

    But as Al Jazeera's Roza Ibragimova reports, there is at least one local charity in Mogadishu, Somalia's capital, which is doing the best it can to save the starving.
