Tim Freccia -- Mogadishu: City under siege

Despite the city's reputation as one of the most dangerous places on earth, Freccia describes its Somali residents as "elegant." He goes on to say "Men in kikoys step daintily through the street, shouldering RPGs and machine guns. The women glance furtively from the shadows, and smile flirtatiously. The citizens of Mogadishu sweep up after the fighting, glancing at me as I drive by, waiting for the war to end and the beach-side cafes to open again."
