A Return to Normalcy: Mogadishu’s Lido Beach Lively Again

A scene from Lido Beach in Mogadishu, Somalia, with a boy (on right) holding up a shirt to dry in the wind.

The beach has become a popular hangout spot for hundreds of Somalis since the withdrawal in August 2011 of the Al Shabaab militant extremist group, which had banned any such social gatherings of men and women.
