MOGADISHU (Sunatimes)- After blasts on mosques in Mogadishu and the southern port city of Kismayo,  a member of Somalia’s twitchy legislative body says western nations are plotting the explosions in mosques.

Dahir Abdikadir conforms to the insurgents’ accusation that western nations were behind the deadly blast on a mosque in their main base market (Bakara) that killed more than 50 more people, mostly militants.

“The explosion on the mosque was a new strategy arranged by western countries” Abdikadir told reporters over weekend.

He didn’t specify a particular western country that could plot his allegations.

He urged the rebel groups to stop shelling residential neighbourhoods, saying he believes Au peacekeepers in Mogadishu not on a peacekeeping mission but to rather safeguard the three top most senior officials in government and called upon them to withdraw from the country.

“They do nothing for our people at all, they should leave our country” he noted.

An arc of conflict stretches 5,000 peacekeepers from Uganda and Buruundi in Mogadishu with Islamist insurgents.

In the dusty streets of Mogadishu, Somali troops are struggling to contain a fierce insurgency.

They are supported by a tiny African Union force.

The Islamist insurgents are backed by Eritrea which wants to reduce the threat on its border from Ethiopia.
