Somalia - 3 documentaries (description).txt
Somalia, a wartorn country on the East Coast (Horn) of Africa has
been a trouble spot for decades now. When US forces suffered
humiliation in the infamous Blackhawk Down incident they where
soon withdrawn and the country increasingly regarded as a no-go-
area even by humanitarian organisations.
These 3 documentaries from the British \'Channel 4\' paint a vivid
and at times very disturbingly graphic image of the civil strife.
Apart from the almost usual fighting between the local warlords a
new force has risen, the Union of Islamic Courts, to compete in the
struggle for power. After an invasion by Ethiopian forces in 2006
warlords once again reign in the Somali capital Mogadishu. Countries
like Britain are paying to maintain their rule even though reports
speak of torture and holding to ransom by government officials.
Kenya-born Aidan Hartley explores the situation in Mogadishu:
1. AL-QAEDA\'S NEW HAVEN (2005, 25 minutes)
2. HEARTS, MINDS & HOLY WAR (2006, 25 minutes)
3. WARLORDS NEXT DOOR? (2008, 48 minutes)
