Leading Islamist militants killed by al-Shabab

12 September 2013

Two leading Islamist militants have been killed in an attack by al-Shabab in a village outside the town of Dinsor.  Omar Hammami and Osama al-Britani had been in hiding since leaving al-Shabab with veteran Islamist Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys earlier this year.  Meanwhile some 160 Somali religious scholars have issued a fatwa denouncing al-Shabab, saying that the group is not an Islamic movement.

Securing specialist Somalia insurance should be central to preparations for visiting this war torn and largely ungoverned country. Due to ongoing armed conflict, widespread violent crime, piracy and the specific targeting of westerners for hostage, travel to Somalia is strongly discouraged without expert advice and the strictest security precautions.
