Somalia is not just a story of violence and state failure. Focus on our strengths
Abdi risaq Mohamed Kheyre, ICRC employee and Aali Mo’alim Black, UNICEF official have been arrested Al-shabab fighters who are reportedly loyal to Al-shabab’s first leader Mohame d Abid Owgodane. The nationality of abducted officials is Somali.
