Manukau and Mogadishu

I was struck by the following sentences from two different articles in today’s NZ Herald. First this

“There was a lot of disorder and domestic incidents across the district – more than usual for a Friday night. There was lots of fighting, and groups of people fighting in the streets of various locations over town”

and then this

“That’s the kind of place it was, incredibly dangerous, and large numbers of men walking around with all kinds of weapons.”

The first is Manukau in South Auckland. The second, Mogadishu, Somalia.
