US ordered staffers of Somalia mission to leave over threat

US ordered staffers of Somalia mission to leave over threat
Somalia — The United States has ordered all non-essential employees of its mission to Somalia to leave the capital, Mogadishu, because of “specific threat information” against
them.
Saturday’s statement says the information relates to Mogadishu International Airport.
Somalia remains one of the world’s most dangerous countries. The U.S. hasn’t had an embassy there since 1991 and calls security “extremely unstable.”




Somalia’s capital was rocked last month by the country’s worst attack, which killed more than 350 people.
The U.S. on Friday carried out its first airstrikes against ISIS fighters in Somalia.
The U.S. Mission to Somalia is based in neighboring Kenya. The first U.S. ambassador to Somalia in a quarter-century told Radio Muqdisho in June that offices for a permanent diplomatic presence were expected to open in Mogadishu this year.
