Minnesota is home to the largest population of Somali immigrants in the U.S. The state demographer estimates at least 25,000 Somalis live in the state.
Most of them live in Minneapolis and are keeping careful track of the Ethiopian military's advance into Somalia and the ensuing violence.
This morning, I went to a coffee shop in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis. I asked the Somalis I met there how they're keeping track of events in their homeland. I also got their opinions on the news.
