Sufi militia vies for power in Somalia

Ahlu Sunna Wal Jama'a, a moderate Sufi militia, is battling the notorious Al Shabab for territory in Somalia. The group is a relatively recent player in the country's longstanding turbulence, and some hope it will aid in fighting the extremism of Al Shabab. (Sudarsan Raghavan/The Washington Post)
