The Somalia Conference
World leaders are gathering in London to map out Somalia's future. After more than 20 years since the country's central government collapsed, war, terrorism, piracy and famine remain. The international community is trying to bolster Somalian efforts to rebuild the fragile nation. A set of ambitious goals were set in London, but it remains to be seen whether militant Islamist group Al-Shabaab will hamper efforts to forge a path to a more stable and secure Somalia.
