Conflict in Somalia Escalating Toward War

In response to the burgeoning humanitarian and political crises, the U.N. Security Council called an emergency meeting on the conflict this afternoon.
For a closer look at the conflict, I am joined by Akwe Amosu, senior policy analyst for Africa at the Open Society Institute in Washington. She's written and reported widely on African issues for over 20 years.
And Abdi Samatar, a professor of geography at the University of Minnesota, born in Somalia, he's now a U.S. citizen and last visited his homeland in November.
Akwe Amosu, for people who haven't been paying attention since U.S. troops left the Horn of Africa, what's been going on in Somalia for the last 10 years? Bring us up to today.
