UN Takes Action After Haysom Kicked Out, Al-Shabaab Attack

Ambassador Abukar Dahir Osma, the country's UN envoy has urged the United Nations not to interfere in Somalia's internal affairs,  days after the government expelled the UN's top official there. The expulsion of South African Nicholas Haysom was accused of "violating protocols" and "deliberately interfering" in Somali affairs. The government's action came shortly after 7 mortars landed inside the UN compound - an attack claimed by Al-Shabaab.
