Turkey’s Erdogan Pledges 10,000 New Somali Homes During Visit

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Somalia amid tight security, pledging 10,000 new homes to help the country rebuild after more than two decades of conflict.

Turkey will construct the residences within two years for lower- and middle-class families who can’t afford to build or buy, Erdogan told reporters on Sunday at the presidential palace in the capital, Mogadishu. He didn’t give further details.
