Ruthless new terror cell reported in Somalia

Mogadishu-based group has links to al-Qaida, according to report
NAIROBI, Kenya - A new and ruthless cell with links to al-Qaida has grabbed a foothold in Somalia’s capital, according to a report released Monday that dovetails with other analyses showing the lawless country could become a haven for international terrorists.In its report, the International Crisis Group said the Mogadishu cell was led by a young Somali militant trained in Afghanistan, where al-Qaida was once based. The report said the group “announced its existence by murdering four foreign aid workers in the relatively secure territory of Somaliland between October 2003 and April 2004.”
