Mogadishu — Somali Federal Government's (SFG) Minister of Interior stated that Special Somali Forces will be patrolling the streets of Mogadishu for the next week, Garowe Online reports.
Minister Abdikarim Hussein Guled stated that in attempts to improve security a Special Forces team would be taking over security in the war-torn capital.
"We have provided 20 vehicles that these forces will be using to patrol Mogadishu. These troops will carry out 24 hour patrols throughout the city," said Minister Guled.
Although he didn't state the number of troops that were in the Special Forces he did state that some of the troops had received training from abroad with the rest being trained in Somalia.
The Minister stated that a hotline will be provided for citizens in Mogadishu for anyone who spots criminal activities.
The revamping in security in the capital comes after one of the most deadliest attacks was carried out last Sunday that resulted in over 30 deaths and 50 injuries.
