The secret war in Somalia

Ghaith Abdul-Ahad is one of the finest war correspondents in the world (see Iraq).

His latest report is from Somalia, a truly hidden war and a most brutal one.

Why is some of the world now caring about the country? A minister explains:

For the first time in many years the international community is interested in Somalia, not because of our suffering but because of al-Qaida. The British and the Americans are interested in helping us because they see the anarchy in Mogadishu is hitting them back home.
