War report from Somalia
Story on 57-year old Ahmed Noor, who used to run an internet café in London, but is now the mayor of Mogadishu, where he attempts to make it a safer place. The islamist group Al-Shahaab has put a 100,000 dollar prize on his head. The story was widely published in Europe. This is war reporting at its best: writing s from an original angle and a human perspective about conflicts that receive little interest from the West. On the spot, under dangerous circumstances, well-written, informative journalism.
