Somalia is not just a story of violence and state failure. Focus on our strengths
Clive Dennis, 45, was arrested by immigration officers at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde International Airport.
A Somali news website claimed Jamican-born Dennis, who arrived from London via Nairobi, was carrying drugs and knives and had admitted he had travelled to the country “to help Islam”.
He is the latest Briton to be seized in Somalia or Kenya over alleged links to al-Qaeda-backed group al-Shabaab.
Jermaine Grant, 29, of London, was arrested in Kenya in December and is to stand trial over an alleged terror plot.
Police believe he could have been working with Samantha Lewthwaite, 28, widow of 7/7 suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsay.
