US soldiers piling up ammunition and weapons in the desert outside Mogadishu before using explosives to destroy them. Tons of arms seized from civilians by the US-led task force, in Somalia to speed up deliveries of humanitarian aid, have been destroyed since December. Until the arrival of the task force, bands of gunmen loyal to local warlords had been looting the food aid, bringing famine that has killed more than 300,000 people in the past two years
