Proxy war in Soamlia

Proxy war in Soamlia
Somalia briefly hit the news radar last month when pirates off its coast hijacked the largest ship ever seized in history. Usually this spectacularly failed state stays off the map, a horrifying, vicious, forgotten backwater. I’ve covered Somalia’s anarchy for 18 years: civil war, famine, the “Black Hawk Down” battle, warlords, piracy, even toxic-waste dumping. While reporting on Somalia this year, I’ve survived gunfire, a roadside-bomb blast, and attempts at abduction or assassination. Source
