World Radio Day

A presenter reads the news at Radio Shabelle, one of Mogadishu's most popular radio stations.
With a population that is still one of the world's poorest, radio continues to be one of the primary sources of information for many in Somalia. However, while peace has largely returned to Somalia's capital of Mogadishu, journalists working in the city continue to face huge risks in their effort to report the news. As of December this year, 18 media workers have been killed in Somalia as a result of IED explosions, grenade attacks, and targeted assassinations.
