MOGADISHU (Sh.M.Network)—Somali security forces carried out on Tuesday a house to house search in Mogadishu, arresting dozens of suspected Al-Shabaab militants together with their weapons, police said.
The operations occurred in Yaqshid district early on Tuesday morning as pacification operations continue in the Horn of Africa nation after the capture of the city last year in 2011 from Al shabab militants.
Mogadishu, Somali capital has seen series of massive arrests since last September when Somali MPs elected Hassan Sheikh Mohamud as a president for a federal republic government, for the first time in Somali history for more than 42 years.
The militant group has also come under pressure from Uganda, Burundi and Sierra Leone soldiers who recently pushed out them out of the outskirts of Somali capital Mogadishu and other key regions they used to control two years ago.
