"Somalia is experiencing a moment of both tragedy and hope", the UN special envoy for the Horn of Africa country said during a briefing to the Security Council on Thursday.

The meeting on security and famine was chaired by the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson.

The Council members began by observing a moment of silence for the victims of Wednesday's terror attack outside the Houses of Parliament in London.
