STORIES: Somalia: The girls of Mogadishu are heading back to the beach: The girls of Mogadishu are heading back to the beach

Africa, Somalia, Benaadir region. Mogadishu. Some girls posing for a selfie at the Peace Garden or as they call it here, Beerta Nabadda. For the city's young people, the Peace Garden is the new hangout spot. A few minutes before this shot, a suicide bomb blast (in front of a hotel in the center of the capital) was heard from the garden. Despite this, life goes on normally. Although the fighting in Somalia has slowed down, it has not yet ceased. In addition to placing car bombs, the Al-Shabaab Islamic fighters now wage carefully targeted guerrilla warfare on government targets, men from the AMISOM contingent and westerners. The Somali army is too weak to fight off the jihadists, and the only means of defense the Somali people have is the African Union contingent.
