Barry In Charge: Responding To The Somali Pirates Only Inflames Those Against Us (Mogadishu Mortar Attack Response)

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali insurgents fired mortars toward U.S. congressman Donald Payne as he left the Somali capital on a rare visit by a U.S. politician to the anarchic Horn of Africa nation, police said.

"One mortar landed at the airport when Payne's plane was due to fly and five others after he left and no one was hurt," Abukar Hassan, a police officer at Mogadishu airport, told Reuters. (source)
