Investigators are in Mogadishu to look into allegations of sexual abuse involving African Union (AU) forces in Somalia.

The probe follows the release of a report in September by the non-profit Human Rights Watch focusing on soldiers deployed by the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

A team of four officers will determine whether these accusations are true.
