Officials: Kenyan police stop major terror attack update


A self-confessed member of the Al-Shabaab terror group found in possession of an arsenal of arms in Nairobi will undergo a psychiatric examination before a court rules on his fate.Mr Abdimajid Yassin Mohammed alias Ali Hussein shocked a parked courtroom on Monday when he pleaded guilty to nine charges linking him to terrorism.He was charged alongside Mr Omar Abdi alias Adan Salman Abdi, a Somali, who denied being a member of banned group but confessed to being in Kenya illegally.Mr Yassin was warned several times of the penalty that awaited him, but he smiled confidently maintaining the accusations were true.At one time he told the magistrate to "put a tick" against the charges - meaning he understood their import and had pleaded guilty.Magistrate Lucy Nyambura ordered Mr Yassin be examined before the case resumes on September 20."By the the demeanour displayed in court I would want a psychiatric report compiled before the facts of the case are read out," the magistrate ruled.The duo were arrested in a police operation in the city's Eastleigh estate last week as police issued an alert that members of the Al Shabaab had been dispatched in town and were getting ready to carry out deadly attacks including assassinations in the country.Mr Yassin told the court police arrested him on September 14 along Eastleigh's 4th street second avenue and found him in possession of a cache of firearms including four suicide vests fitted with remote controlled buttons.The court heard he was found in possession of the improvised explosive vests weighing 30 kilograms, four AK 47 assault rifles bullets and grenades.He said he was a member of the Al-Shabaab and caused laughter in court by adding that - by the weapons found in his possession- he "could even be more than" a member of terror gang.On a charge stating he was found illegally in Kenya, Mr Yassin said the police were wrong."I am a Kenyan I was born here," he said, but his suspected accomplice pleaded guilty to the charge.
Mr Omar Abdi said he was a Somali and was unlawfully present in Kenya at the time the police stormed their hideout in Eastleigh.Mr Yassin and Mr Omar are held at the inland container depot police station in the city's Industrial area.Prosecutor Onesmus Towett said the court may have to relocate to view the cache of weapons that were seized as exhibits should the suspect maintain his plea.The court heard that the weapons were found in a house the men had rented in Nairobi’s Eastleigh estateThey included four improvised suicide bomb vests, 12 hand grenades, four AK-47 assault rifles, 480 rounds of ammunition and two home-made bombs.Eight suspects believed to be part of the syndicate are still on the run, according to the police.The arrests were made at 1am on Friday by a crack squad of the Special Crime Prevention Unit backed by their anti-terrorism counterparts.The suspects reportedly did not put up resistance when the officers surrounded the storey building, knocked at their door and ordered them out.A police report stated the recovered suicide bomber vests were similar to the ones used in the July 2010 bombings in Kampala, Uganda, in which 76 people died and many more injured.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
