(UNKNOWN): Yes, she's going to be OK.

MUIR: Christiane, it's really something to see how quickly the children bounce back once you feed them, which is why the U.N. says it's imperative to get the food and the aid here into the capital of Somalia, Mogadishu.

There are people now coming to this city by the tens of thousands, knowing full well the danger they face in doing so. It's a sign of just how desperate they've become. We'll be traveling on the convoy today, and you can see the torrential downpours here at the airport. It's going to make the whole effort all the more challenging.

Christiane, back to you.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

AMANPOUR: David, thank you, from Mogadishu, Somalia.

And it is so hard. Be sure to watch "World News Tonight" for more of David's exclusive reporting. Viewers of "This Week" have given generously to help the people of Somalia. But as you can see, the challenges are great. To find out how you can help, visit our Web site at abcnews.com/thisweek.

We'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now, the Sunday funnies.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FERGUSON: We owe a record amount of money to China. And the Chinese are starting to drop little hints they might want it back. They have. Last night, I got Chinese food, and the fortune cookie said, "Where's our money (bleep)?"

(LAUGHTER)

"I don't have your money." "You get my money."

(LAUGHTER)

O'BRIEN: President Obama said that compromise has become a dirty word. Yeah. Then he told Republicans to go compromise themselves.

(LAUGHTER)

COLBERT: The debt ceiling debate drags on and on, and, frankly, both parties have been acting like children, with the Republicans saying, "Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie," and the Democrats saying, "Take it, take it, take it, just don't hit me."

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

AMANPOUR: And we'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now, "In Memoriam."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SMITH: Good evening from ABC News headquarters in Washington. I'm Howard K. Smith.

REASONER: I'm Harry Reasoner in New York. These are tonight's headlines.

(UNKNOWN): And Hideki Irabu will pitch out of it.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

AMANPOUR: This week, the Pentagon did not release any names of U.S. Service members killed in Iraq or Afghanistan, and it's the first time since we began this segment that we have not had to mark the loss of any U.S. forces in those conflicts. We'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: That's our program for today. Be sure to watch "World News Tonight" for all the latest on the debt ceiling negotiations. And remember, you can follow us any time on Twitter, Facebook, and or abcnews.com. For all of us here in Washington, thank you for watching, and we'll see you again next week.
