Somalia violence

A report issued by the international human rights agency, Human Rights Watch has accused Kenya and the African Union of involving in Somalia conflict illegally.

 

Kenyan officials are said to have providing support to the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia by recruiting teenagers as soldiers, from Dadab refugee camp in the Somali populated Kenyan Northeastern Province.

 

The report said that the Kenyan government started the recruiting of the soldiers mid last year, although Kenya has vehemently denied the allegations.

 

The human rights bodies have earlier asked Kenya to stop all activities, which are against the international laws. Among the activities that Kenya was asked to stop include the recruitment of Somali teenagers as soldiers to fight along side the Somali transitional government.

 

The Human Rights Watch report has also accused the African Union peacekeepers in Mogadishu of shelling civilian populated areas in the capital.

 

The report said when African Union peacekeepers come under attack from the Somali insurgents they respond harshly, causing deaths of tens of innocent civilians.

 

Human Rights Watch has asked the US in its report to stop providing weapons to the Somali government until its ensured that the transitional government of Somalia complies with international laws of war.

 

The organization has also asked the UN, the African Union and the USA to stop their unjustified opposition to Somali insurgents.

 

The report has further added that Somali government has a chance to restore peace and stability in the country, although its considered by many as a weak administration, while the insurgent groups like Al-Shabab seem to be gaining more strength. Some of Al-Shabab leaders are being linked with the leader of Al-Qaidah, Shaykh Usama Bin-Ladin.
