SOMALIA BASKETBALL

Thousands of fans gather at Mogadishu's Lujino stadium to watch the final basketball match between Hegan and Horsed female clubs Thursday Jan. 29, 2009 in Mogadishu, Somalia. Basketball games have now become the only entertainment for teenagers and residents living in relatively calm north Mogadishu, despite violence and security challenges in the south. Ten teams of men, taking part in the competition, share the only stadium, which is hosting the games, since it started in Oct. 2008. The tournament , organized by the Somali basketball federation has attracted many spectators in the city. (AP Photo / Mohamed Sheikh Nor)
