Somalia: May 11, 2003

At least two people were killed and three other seriously injured in a nighttime shootout in Mogadishu, when a discussion in a mosque between two Sunni rivals (on how the birth of the Prophet was to be celebrated) first degenerated into a fistfight and then an armed conflict. Several worshippers that were in the Mosque were also amongst the victims when both parties opened fire. Friendly disagreements like this can simmer for a week or two and then spark a full-out fight between extended family and tribal militias. - Adam Geibel

Over the years, we have tried to keep in-your-face ads off our site. If our readers have complained about an ad, we have looked into it and 90% of the time removed the ad. Unfortunately, revenues from standard ads are just not enough to keep us alive.

What can you do to help resuscitate StrategyPage? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..
