Just over a year ago, Ethiopia sent its troops into Somalia.
They went in - with US backing - to chase an Islamist movement from the capital, Mogadishu. But anger at the presence of Ethiopian troops has boosted support for radical Islamist groups and in recent weeks, violence has increased.
In this week's Crossing Continents, Rob Walker goes in search of the Somali insurgents fighting against the Ethiopian troops.
He will be asking whether Ethiopia's intervention has helped to create precisely the threat they had hoped to eradicate.
