K50 Airstrip, Mogadishu, Somalia

People unload hessian sacks full with khat. Each day, five planes fly in from Nairobi, stuffed with kat, and land at the private airport built by the war lord Mohamad Kanyare. From 10 am on hundreds of wholesalers arrive to collect their load of khat to sell in the capital. The daily market for khat is worth about GBP 314,00 (USD 400,000).
