CNN cable international just listed Somalia in a segment on global conflicts. As you know, I've been warning of the deteriorating situation there and the threat posed by Islamists (who, if successful, will establish a base for terror in the Horn of Africa). Some 30 legislators resigned due to the failure of the Somali government to come to an accord with Somali Islamists. Independent Online (a new source to me) reported that
The administration was formed two years ago with the support of the United Nations to help Somalia emerge from more than a decade of anarchy, but it has no power outside its base in Baidoa, 250km from the capital, Mogadishu.
I'd be curious what support the administration has received from the UN. Has the UN been assisting the administration in battling Islamists? Or shall I assume that the UN wants to talk?
