Music Banned on Somali Radio

Most radio stations in Somalia have stopped playing music, on the orders of Islamist Hizbul-Islam militia, who say that songs are un-Islamic.

Some people like to claim that Somalia is an example of libertarian ideals at work in the real world. They have no government, supposedly, but this sounds a helluva lot like government to me.

Somalia organized many years ago under Islamic groups in order to fight the invading Ethiopian forces, funded by the USA. So the US gov managed to get them into a government of sorts, even if it is not the one they planned.
