Somali troops attack al-Shabaab

The Somali troops supported by the peace-making contingent of the African Union are attacking the positions of the radical al-Shabaab group linked with the al-Qaeda terrorist network. The Islamists have been dislodged from several places in the south of the country.

In response, al-Shabaab militants carry out sabotage. Last Wednesday, explosions went off near a hotel in Mogadishu where recently elected President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was staying.

After Mohamed Siad Barre’s dictatorship in Somalia was overthrown in 1991, the country broke up into three parts – Somaliland and Puntland in the north and Somalia with the capital in Mogadishu in the south.

The international community only recognizes Somalia.
