In March 2007, the African Union sanctioned an 8000-strong force (currently 9000) made up mainly of Ugandan and Burundian troops to prop up the weak Transitional Federal Government of Somalia (TFG) against the threat of the Islamic extrimist group, Al-Shabaab. From a tiny area around Aden Ade International Airport in Mogadishu, AMISOM forces have slowly pushed Al-Shabaab back and now control most of the capital city. Below are some images of AMISOM soldiers taken by George Philipas.
