Elections in Kenya, war in Somalia

Election season is in full swing here in Kenya. Polls in the past few weeks showing challenger Raila Odinga trouncing President Mwai Kibaki seem to have kicked the latter into stepping up his campaigning. And it's paying off, as he's closed the gap considerably in the latest poll.

Meanwhile, Mogadishu is witnessing its worst bout of violence since April, which means it's pretty bad. There are reports of Ethiopian troops being dragged through the streets. Now why does that sound familiar?
