Living in Somalia's danger zone

(Waridaad) - The once-bustling streets of Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, are now eerily empty.
The southern neighbourhoods are littered with the scars of recent fighting between the insurgents and Ethiopian-backed forces of the transitional government.

Ethiopian tanks have taken up positions outside the houses of the hundreds of thousands of residents who have fled the city - estimated to be 60% of the city's population.
