The Somalia situation is now being covered in The Washington Post (though on A22), which is reporting that the U.S. is warning Somalia's neighbors to stay out of the internal conflict. t troops to back the interim government and that Eritrea has given weapons to an Islamic militia that controls the capital.

The tinder box is starting to smoke.......
