Somalia is facing "immense" challenges as it emerges from two decades of civil war and recurrent droughts according to the United Nations.

The UN Secretary-General visited the Horn of Africa country on Wednesday to pledge support for its transition to democracy and to promote security and development in the region.

Ban Ki-moon was joined by the World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

Priscilla Lecomte asked the UN's Aleem Siddique, who's based in Somalia, about the visit.
