Picture of the Day:


A young girl holds her baby brother inside a makeshift tent at a camp for internally displaced people on the outskirts of Mogadishu, Somalia on June 8, 2009. More than 96,000 Somalis have been displaced and 200 killed since fighting first broke out in May. The recent clashes were initiated by extremists who want the implementation of strict Sharia law.

But long before May, Somalia has always been a no-man’s land.
