    In this photo of Monday April 30 2012 a Somali government soldier patrols the street after illegal kiosks and business sites are demolition in Mogadishu's Bakara market in Mogadishu Somalia. Bulldozers protected by government troops are demolishing small kiosks along a street in Mogadishu's largest market. The bulldozing operation taking place is a city-backed effort to help clean up Mogadishu and create space in a a crowded market throughway. For the affected traders, there is a certain irony in the government initiative. For years Somalis have lamented the fact that their city had no government. Now that life is returning to a semblance of normal in a city that has endured 20 years of conflict, the businessmen on the receiving end of the clean-up plan are voicing reservations about city management.(AP Photo/Farah Abdi Warsameh)

    In this Sunday, March 4, 2012 file photo, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has tears in his eyes as he reacts at a massive rally of his supporters during presidential election at Manezh square outside the Kremlin, in Moscow. Vladimir Putin's return to the presidency on Monday May 7, 2012 will technically give him greater powers than he wielded as prime minister.
