News snippet: Mogadishu

In an otherwise gruesome story, I thought this was a pretty wonderful image:

On Wednesday, a group of masked men stood on the steps of a Mogadishu mosque and proclaimed themselves to be Somalia’s new freedom fighters. They were met by jeers.

“Why can’t you hit anything, then?” shouted one woman, referring to a botched grenade attack that missed the Ethiopians and demolished a house. “Were you scared? Were your fingers trembling?”
