In this Tuesday Aug. 9, 2011 photo, explosives expert Martinus Van Blerk points at part of a homemade explosive device which is part of a stockpile of devices he and his team have defused in the Somali capital of Mogadishu. On the front lines of Mogadishu's street battles, Somali fighters and foreign militants square off against soldiers from Uganda and Burundi. Standing alongside them, quietly giving advice, is an American-run team of former military men who are helping the African Union troops defeat al-Shabab. (AP Photo/Katharine Houreld) less
