    The Somali Prime Minister meets with senior security officials.

    Mogadishu, Somalia – On Sunday, Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble met with senior security officials as well as the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). They looked into the security lapse that allowed the terror attacks in Beledweyne and Mogadishu on Wednesday.

    The prime minister ordered security chiefs to conduct a thorough investigation into the attacks and to beef up security throughout the country, particularly at polling stations, ahead of the presidential elections in Mogadishu.

    Following the meeting, Farhan Ali Ahmed, the Minister of State for Security, told the press that the Prime Minister had appointed a joint committee of government and AMISOM security ministers, which he promised would act quickly.

    Ambassador Mahamat Saleh Annadif, the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, has strongly condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Mogadishu and Beledweyne.

    President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo met with military, police, corrections, and intelligence commanders on Saturday.

    The federal ministers of internal security and defense were not present at Farmajo’s Saturday meeting, but they were present at a Sunday meeting with Prime Minister Roble and heads of security agencies, including Somali Police Force Commander General Abdi Hassan Mohamed Hijar.
