Addis Ababa, 13 June 2014 (WIC) - Britain has warned that Somalia’s al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab militant group is planning further attacks in the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti.
“There are credible reports that al Shabaab plans have the capability to attack important targets in Djibouti particularly Western interests,” said the Foreign Office.
The reports further says that due to the Djibouti troop’s contribution to AMISOM in Somalia and harboring of western interest inside its soil al Qaeda linked group see it as an important target.
“Western interests within Djibouti and country’s participation in the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia may be seen as a legitimate target by al Shabaab militant group,” the Foreign Office statement said. (Somali Current)
