___ Satellite View and Map of the City of Mogadishu (Muqdisho), Somalia

Searchable Map and Satellite View of Mogadishu using Google Earth Data

Satellite view is showing Mogadishu, largest city, seaport and the national capital of Somalia, located just north of the Equator on Somalia's coast at the Indian Ocean.
Mogadishu has an estimated population of between 1.5 and 3 million inhabitants.
For centuries the city was a major port and has served as a commercial and financial center. After the ouster of the Siad Barre and his military junta, Mogadishu was subsequently run by competing warlords and various militias until 2006, when the Islamic Courts Union (ICU, a coalition government of Somali Islamists and businessmen) seized control of almost the entire country. In the same year the Ethiopian military ousted the ICU and restored the internationally-recognized "Transitional Federal Government" of Somalia. With a change in administration, a new technocratic government was elected to office in late 2010, federal control of Mogadishu has since steadily expanded.

Since the the ouster of the al-Qaida-linked insurgents of al-Shabab, today battle-scarred Somali capital regains lost time with a booming real estate market.

The map shows a city map of Mogadishu with expressways, main roads and streets, and the location of Mogadishu International Airport (IATA code: MGQ) zoom out to find K50 Airport which now serves Mogadishu, located about 35 km (22 mi) west of the city.
