African Union Mission discovers a 'bomb factory' in Mogadishu

The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) claims to have discovered a bomb factory in the war-torn capital Magadishu.

The factory was allegedly left behind by the Somali Islamist militant group al Shabab after two days of fierce fighting with AMISOM troops.

Factional fighting in Mogadishu has forced tens of thousands of people from the city even before the current famine crisis began.

Ghada Nassef reports.
