Somalia Update

The Somali police chief was killed in a fight with Islamist rebels yesterday in Mogadishu. Analysts say that loss of the chief is a big blow to the government forces trying to gain back control of the country.

All I hear is bad news coming out of Somalia and any time I hear about a blow to government forces it is very disconcerting because the government is barely existent in the country as is. It seems like the scales in Somalia are tipping further and further in favor of Islamist rebels.
