‘Al-Shabaab Is A Terrorist Group’
The Somali Association in Sweden (Somaliska Riksförbundet) has condemned the organization Al Shabaab for its terrorist activities. Speaking to Swedish Radio, the head of the Somali Association, Farah Abdisamad, called Al Shabaab a dangerous terrorist group that has connections to Al Qaida.
This is the first time a Somali organization in Sweden disassociates itself from Al Shabaab. Al Shabaab controls vast parts of the central and southern areas in Somalia and has tried to recruit Somalis in Sweden. The United States considers Al Shabaab a growing terrorist organization.
