Somalia's president denies UN graft report

President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed tells Al Jazeera that charges of officials' corruption are off-base.

    President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed condemned a UN report accusing senior leaders of corruption in an interview with Al Jazeera.

    The UN report alleged that seven out of every $10 donated to the transitional government had gone missing.

    There are also accusations that Ahmed's entourage tried to influence the selection committee vetting eligible parliamentarians.
