John Kerry first US secretary of state to visit Somalia

John Kerry made an unannounced visit to Somalia on Tuesday, the first US Secretary of State to visit the Horn of Africa nation, which is struggling to rebuild after two decades of war and battling an Islamist insurgency by al Shabaab militants.
Kerry will meet Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, the prime minister, provincial leaders and civilian groups, US officials said, but they did not say where meetings would be held for security reasons.
