How Minnesota's Somali Community is Mobilizing to Help Bombing Victims in Mogadishu

Associate Professor Jessica Stanton is quoted in this MinnPost story, looking at efforts by Minnesota Somalis to help victims of a terrorist bombing in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia.
Here is the extract:
"It’s not surprising that many people in the Somali diaspora community have gone back, said Jessica Stanton, an expert on global security and conflict, who teaches at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. “Because some of those people migrated quite some time ago, they had time to establish themselves either in the U.S. or other countries,” she said. “Therefore, they have the resources to be able to go back and try to help.”
