Somalia: Turkish Airlines begins flights to Mogadishu

Turkey's PM has said he wants to challenge the idea that Mogadishu is a no-go area The first major commercial airline in more than 20 years has landed at Mogadishu airport in war-torn Somalia. Turkish Airlines says it is the start of a regular service to the Somali capital, the first by an international carrier from outside East Africa. Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bosdag was on board the flight, which was welcomed by the Somali president. The twice-weekly flights should make travel easier for Somali businessmen and members of the large diaspora.
