Addis Ababa, August 14, 2013 (WIC) - Somalia says it has destroyed 17 operation centers used by the Al-Shabaab militant group in Mogadishu as it looks to improve security in the capital.

The Minister was speaking following a high-level meeting held at Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon's residence which was attended by cabinet members and commanders of the army, police and the security agencies. The meeting was also attended by officials from Mogadishu’s municipality.
