Somali Cabinet Passes Anti-terrorist Bill

Somali cabinet ministers met on Thursday to discuss an anti-terrorist bill submitted by the Ministry of National Security. The meeting chaired by Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali was focused on the bill aimed at tackling insecurity and terror attacks. The bill, which  will allow security agencies to deal with any terror related cases effectively, needs to be approved by the Federal Parliament of Somalia. This comes less than a week after 17 were killed in an attack carried out by Al-Shabab fighters on Makka Al-Mukarrama, hotel in Mogadishu.
