There have been "huge positive developments in Somalia" over the past four years despite the ongoing terrorist threat posed by militants of the Al-Shabaab group, according to the head of UN Police in the country.

Somalia’s first democratic elections in 47 years are underway as the country continues to recover from civil conflict and the ravages of recurrent droughts.

Christoph Buik is the Police Commissioner with the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia, known as UNSOM.

On a recent visit to UN Headquarters in New York, he spoke to Daniel Dickinson.
