Traditional Dance in Mogadishu, Dec 4 2012

Somali women performing traditional dance in Mogadishu Tuesday, Dec 4 2012. 

It was the first in three years that this traditional festival, from middle Shabelle, was held in Boondheere district of Mogadishu. Alshabab's strict rules banned such as a festivals and traditional gatherings until they were forced out of Mogadishu by the African Union peacekeepers last year (photography by Feisal Omar).
