New PM named for Somalia

Col. Nur Hassan Hussein (aka Nur Ade) was named prime minister for Somalia's Transitional Federal Government (TFG). He's almost 70 yrs old and was not previously involved in Somali politics, and that's a good thing but the task ahead - mainly to reach out to Hawiye clan who mostly oppose the TFG - is a tremendously difficult task. You can find a brief on him here. I'll have more on this later.
