"Mogadishu Still Too Dangerous for UN, Annan Says."
UN Integrated Regional Information Networks
UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, has announced that the security situation in Mogadishu remains too unstable to establish a long term UN security presence in the capital. Mogadishu still remains too lawless to begin a peace-building program. Since 1991, Somalia remains one of the most dangerous environments in the world.
Somalia continues to be politically divided among many warlords that cause the country to remain in a virtual state of unrest. The foundation of the Transitional National Government (TNG) represented an opportunity for the UN to enter the country in the hope of creating stability. The TNG still remains disorganized and faces strong opposition from other factions.
The situation in Somalia still remains rather perilous, but hope does exist that in the future Somalia create stable governmental system.
