Somalia: Capital City Shell Shocked and Deserted by Population

Somalia: Capital City Shell Shocked and Deserted by Population

Once a beautiful and big sea-side city, Mogadishu, Somalia's capital city is now going through its worst nightmarish and the most affected victims of this misery are the inhabitants, particularly the innocent civilians who were primarily taking the brunt of most horrible events since 1991 when law and order collapsed in the city soon after the topple of Somalia's late strongman Mohamed Siad Bare.
Mogadishu, a prized place to whoever has grown up in it just like me, went through all sorts of violence such as shelling, mortar bombing, air strikes, which completely destroyed its beauty but at this time as you are reading this article, worse than all those, is happening to Somalia's biggest city, mass desertion by its residents after the city has formally become battleground for unscrupulous and brutal sides who mercilessly want to execute their political ambitions through all forms of violence; assassinations, street and gun battles, shelling and many more vicious forms and that is leading the city to be almost empty and ghost.
