I can't wrap my head around why this makes sense. Welcome the good people if that's what you want to do. But "Sister City"?

It's probably fine now.



Security Alert: Mogadishu (Somalia), Airport Terror Threat
Threats; Aviation
Africa > Somalia > Mogadishu
10/9/2018




Location: Mogadishu International Airport (MIA), Mogadishu citywide


Event: As of early October, al-Shabaab allegedly planned to target Mogadishu International Airport with a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) due to the presence of unspecified embassies and private companies located on the compound.


Actions to Take:

• Avoid the area

• Monitor local media for updates

• Be aware of your surroundings
