Al-Shabaab imposes land blockade on Somalia’s Baidoa town: official


MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Al-Qaeda-aligned militant group Al-Shabaab imposed a land blockade on south Somalia’s Baidoa town, the chief of staff of the Somali presidential palace Hussein Sheikh Mohamud said on Sunday.

“I share the pain with the people of Baidoa City and the entire Somali citizens who are subject to the brutal blockade of Al-Shabaab,” Mohamud tweeted.

Local media reported that the move came days after Southwest authorities arrested residents who were heading to Al-Shabaab-controlled territory in Bay and Bakool regions after being summoned by the group.
