Mogadishu residents rebuild after violence

Traders and families have begun moving back to the Somali capital in an effort to rebuild their lives.

    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.
