Meanwhile in Somalia…


Another very powerful slideshow of images from Mogadishu in the Boston Globe’s Big Picture section this week. The caption for the image above by Mohamed Dahir reads,

31 Local journalists take pictures at the scene of the killing of a Somali government soldier near Mogadishu stadium, on May 11, 2009. Remains of dead soldiers littered an area around the stadium following heavy exchanges with Al-Shabaab militia the day before. link

Later today or tomorrow, I will be blogging a report from Mogadishu from a video journalist who was in the capital last week. Click the image above to view the slideshow. Photography for the section comes from Abdirashid Abdulle, Mohamed Dahir, Roberto Schmidt, Mustafa Abdi and MC2 Daniel Barker all from AFP/Getty Images.
