Dangerous work as taxmen return to Somalia

Workers return to their positions in Mogadishu for first time in decades, despite high risk of being killed on the job.

    Taxmen have returned to work for the first time in decades in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

    The Federal Government has decided to collect taxes from market traders as it tries to re-establish its authority in city.

    But dozens of collectors have been killed by men unwilling to pay up.
