Family's plea over Somaliland custody death

The family of a man who died in police custody in East Africa is demanding answers about his death.

Abdullahi Ibrahim, 43, from Bow in east London, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, died on a visit to Somaliland.

He died on 28 November, hours before he was due to stand trial for running over a police officer.

BBC London has tried to contact the authorities in the self-declared independent Somaliland but has not received a response.
