Caught in the crossfire - the children of Mogadishu

07/02/2007 - On 28 December 2006 the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and Ethiopian troops took over the town of Mogadishu, while the Union of Islamic Courts and their militia left, leaving many dangerous weapons in the hands of the public. Since then the security situation in Mogadishu has deteriorated. Mothers, children and co-workers at the SOS Children's Village Mogadishu are understandably very nervous.
