Commitment of more than $365m in cash and aid has followed prime minister's visit to the conflict-torn African nation.

    Turkey has been showing unparallelled interest in Somalia, starting with a visit from Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey's prime minister, in August last year. 

    Turkey has now committed more than $365m in cash and aid to the African nation.
