Thousands of somalis die each year in the red sea waters between Somalia and yemen. War profiteers are making a dirty business out of smuggling people and arms through dangerous sea routes in the Gulf of Aden. See my article, season of death. Time and again these smuglers were called upon the total cesation of this business but nothing tangible has ever been made towards the abolishment of this human trade. Now a French cameraman, Gwen Le Gouil has tried to intervene the situation with his journalistic skills with the aim of alerting the world the consequences of the war in somalia which has led Somalis to perish in the sea. Warlord's squandering of public funds on travel makes a good story on the front pages of the local and regional papers but the boat these terrible boat tragedies do not grab attention in the international media. So it was out of this grim background that Mr. Gouil emabarked on his risky voyage to the northeastern town of Bosasso to be personally a witness of the boat people stories and how they are smugled. I don+t think he has made himself so visible to the human traffickers a s aperson in this kind of situation should remain hidden or stay out under a certain cover of sprotection. But ity happened that the cameraman has been sighted by some interest groups within the ring of the smuggle business who have kidnapped him. Bosasso is the Somali town where the boats leave for leave for yemen.

He had come to expose a hidden misery
But had fallen in the big mouth of evil
Gwen Le Gouil was kidnapped in Somalia
A ransom of 70000 doll. demanded for release
He came to save our people from sea tragedy
But we all can't save him from one gunman
What a pity!

A pity, indeed, (((Abdi-Noor))). All for greed, for self interest...stay safe, know you and your family, your people, your Nation are in my prayers.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
