Security in the Somalia's capital Mogadishu has been intensified for fear of attacks from the alshabab militia group.
Heavy presence of Somali security personnel can be seen patrolling the major streets in the capital Mogadishu.
Special Forces were also deployed to secure government buildings, presidential palace, Mogadishu municipality headquarters, Mogadishu harbor and Aden Abdulle international airport.
This comes following warning by Alshabab spokesman for operation and commands Abdulaziz Musab who called upon Somali citizens to avoid social areas and important government installations referring to possible attacks by the group in the New Year eve.
Last night armed gunmen suspected to be Alshabab members broke into a wedding ceremony and destroyed the musical instruments while forcing the participants to disperse without causing major harm.
