In Mogadishu, Journalists get hard news with risks.

By Mohamed Odowa

Somali journalists venture out in visiting Mogadishu’s war zones where AU force along with government soldiers launched an offensive against the hard-line group of Al- shabaab insurgents, Somalia’s extremist Islamists that controls swathes of the country

The journalists have been visiting in some parties of Mogadishu like Hodan and H/wadag districts where too much fighting continues these days. “I am really telling that Somali journalists are still working hard for their nation, but sorry most of them don’t get thanks let alone protection”, said a Somali civil society member Abduhab Mohammed Ali.    
Somali Journalists Association Network, a small organization defends and speaks for journalists and freedom of expression had striven joining a group of Somali journalists who covered the facts over the battle areas in Mogadishu which parties of it became like a frost place.
