ABSTRACT
The article offers newsbriefs related to risk assessments in various sectors of Somalia. The U.S. attack on Somalia in January 2007 in order to target a suspected al-Qaeda wing is an indication of the U.S. support for the interim government and Ethiopia against the Islamic Courts Union. The nation's economy is at risk, since its government has been in existence for less than two years. The foreign direct investment will be low, since there is no government control and infrastructure.
