Somalia Will Eliminate Terrorism, President Tells UN General Assembly

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud vowed this week that his government will eradicate the threat of al-Shabab and other terrorist groups in his country.

“We are now confident that with enhanced public support, our government will eliminate terrorism from Somalia,” Mohamud said in his address Sept. 22, 2022, to the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

Somali army forces backed by local militias have retaken dozens of villages from the al-Shabab militant group in recent weeks, mostly in the central Hiran and Galgudud regions.
