Silence on Somalia

That would be the New York Times, readers:

"Mother, 5 children die during fighting"

MOGADISHU - A mother and her five children were killed yesterday by a mortar round fired during clashes between Somali insurgents and Ethiopian troops in the south of the capital. In another district in southern Mogadishu, the insurgents fought with government soldiers and also attacked an African Union peacekeeping force base. None of the peacekeepers was hurt, a spokesman said (AP December 31, 2007)."
