Somalia: Mogadishu Main Roads Closed Today

Residents in Mogadishu woke up on Monday morning to find the main roads in the city closed. Well-armed security forces were seen guarding the city centre especially Zoobe, Kilometer 4, Maka Al-Mukarama and surrounding areas.

Many people were footing along the roads to reach their places of work and carry on with their daily activities.

The reason behind the closure of roads are not known but this comes after government security forces raided the home of a former presidential candidate and leader of an opposition party and later arrested him last night.
