Somalis rediscover fun side of Mogadishu

Residents of once war-torn capital enjoy peace by flocking to restaurants and shops after dark.

    The Somali capital Mogadishu is known for being one of the most dangerous cities in the world.

    These days, however, residents are enjoying the city's most peaceful period in more than 20 years.

    Somalis who were once too frightened to venture out after dark are now flocking to restaurants and shops at night.
