Reporter joins troops under fire in war-torn Somalia

Panorama reporter Peter Greste and crew came under fire from Islamist rebels in Mogadishu, the war torn capital of Somalia.

The 20-year-old civil war has caused thousands of deaths and made refugees of millions more.

As one of the few Western journalists to travel to a lawless Mogadishu, Greste witnessed first hand the brutal street fighting as African Union troops try to wrestle control of the city from the rebels.

Panorama: Land of Anarchy, BBC One, Monday, 20 June at 2030BST and then available in the UK on the BBC iPlayer.
