Is Sharia law coming to Somalia?
Does this mean that yet another country may come under Sharia law?
Muslim militants in Somalia claimed to have seized control of the capital, Mogadishu, yesterday after defeating an alliance of US-backed warlords.Worse yet, does this mean a new base for Al-Qaeda?
Several of the secular chieftains who had controlled the city since the overthrow of the east African country's last effective government 15 years ago were reported to have fled the country.
They had won support from Washington in their conflict with militiamen deployed by the powerful Islamic courts amid fears that a hardline Muslim administration would be sympathetic to al-Qa'eda.
