Mogadishu Today
This drawing of a helicopter was found on the wall of the house that was part of the first American Blackhawk helicopter crash in Mogadishu on Oct. 3, 1993. The Somali word on the side of the helicopter, although spelled incorrectly, says "Cobra," which was the type of helicopter used to attack the village.
