Hudur — A district commissioner for Somali government said his administration is committed to overpower the Al Qaeda linked Al shabab militants fighting to remove from power the UN-backed Somali government.
Mohamed Mo'alin, the DC of Hudur in Bakol region, said while giving an interview with Shabelle Media in Mogadishu by phone that the Somali national army will spare no efforts to eradicate the Islamists from the rest of Bakol state and put in place law and order under the government.
Somali national army is in control of several key towns in Bay and Bakol regions, mainly Hudur and Baidoa towns of southern Somalia, after Al shabab left without showing much resistance.
"Al shabab has turned into armed gangs who ambush and loot the public vehicles traveling on the streets in the government-controlled areas in Somalia," said Mr.Mo'allin.
Hudur, which locates some 420 kilometers (260 miles) southwest of Mogadishu, has seen a number of attacks on Somali soldiers by Al shabab fighters.
