Bishkek is a city of wide boulevards and marble-faced public buildings combined with numerous Soviet-style apartment blocks surrounding interior courtyards and, especially outside the city center, thousands of smaller, often privately built houses. It is laid out on a grid pattern, with most streets flanked on both sides by narrow irrigation channels that water the innumerable trees which provide shade in the hot summers.

Exclusive: Suspected arms dealers moved millions in Somali money transfers, report says

The company Amal Express runs the semi-formal transfer service known as Hawala in most of the East African countries. They invited the Central Bank of Somalia to audit their internal systems.

This is a reaction to a report being published by the Geneva-based Global Initiative Against Organised Crime. The report claim that a number of Hawala service providers had been used for illegal payments to arm dealers in Yemen. The seaport of Bosaso seems to be the origin for most of these illegal payments.
