The Somali Islamist militant group al Shabaab has used a clip from the American Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump in its latest recruitment video.

The film from the al-Qaeda affiliated group was directed towards African-Americans and urged them to convert to Islam to take part in holy war.

It featured a speech from early December of Mr Trump calling for all Muslims to be banned from the US, following the shooting of 14 people in San Bernardino, California.
