Somalia

In a photograph released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team August 6, 2012,  a young Somali girl runs in front of an African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) armed personnel carrier on the street behind Lido Beach in the Kaaraan Districtl in Mogadishu. Today is the one-year anniversary marking the date that Al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab withdrew from fixed positions in Mogadishu after having steadily lost territory to forces of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) backed by troops from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), ending their draconian stranglehold on the capital and its population.
