Mogadishu: A City under siege

Mogadishu: A City under siege

Soldiers of the Transitional Federal Government, TFG, patrol a controlled government area along the KM4 road in Mogadishu, Benadir region, Somalia on Nov. 12, 2008. Many of the soldiers, often unpaid and insufficiently trained, belong to differing militia groups, answering to their own leaders. The TFG is currently the internationally recognized government of Somalia, supported by Ethiopia, the U.S. and the U.N. Although having formed in 2004, it wasn't until two years later, when the opposing Islamic Court Union was overthrown, that they gained dominance in the country.
