The first-place winner was awarded an AK-47 rifle and $700, a report from RBC Radio said. Second place was worth an AK-47 and $500, and third place got two grenades and $400, RBC reported. Winners also received religious books.
third place got two grenades and $400
If this was in the US would the third place be the real winner? A full-auto NFA AK-47 is around 15k here, but what is the going price for two grenades?

I have a coworker who is Iraqi and I asked him how much an ak-47 is there he said about $500 us and told me a story about how merchants in the market fire them into the air to prove they work! Can you imagine! Crazy stuff!
Apparently the reason why Somalia is so unstable is because guns are readily available. What do you expect from a channel owned by Al Gore?I saw a documentary with 2 American Journalist that were allowed into Somalia they were heavily guarded.They were allowed to move about and went to the arms market AK-47 were $150 American because at that point in time there was a cease fire so it drove the weapon prices down,an RPG-7 was $300.When they went to one of the crash sites of the Blackhawks,a man that owned the house where a few pieces fell was still BSed and demanded the journalists pay for his damage becuase they were Americans.
The documentary was made in 2009 I think.
