Mogadishu (Somali: Muqdisho; Arabic: مقديشو Maqadīshū) is the official capital of Somalia and a major commercial city on the coast of Africa. Mogadishu was a major battleground in the Somali civil war, which ravaged the country from 1991 until 2012. Since then, the city has experienced a period of rapid reconstruction, including a brand new international airport, paved roads, new hotels, and embassies which have been financed by the Diaspora Somalis and the international community.
