22 nabbed in Somali mosque, school raids

Somali government troops have raided a mosque and a Qur’an school in southern Mogadishu apprehending 22 of the attendants.

Mounting a so-called anti-terrorist operation in the Medina district south of Mogadishu, the heavily-armed troops beat the sheikhs attending the mosque before taking 14 of them away in military vehicles, according to Press TV correspondent.

They also raided a nearby Qur’an school and forced eight people, including seven students and their teacher, onto the vehicles.

The soldiers fired warning shots into the air to cause intimidation, and carried away the detainees to an unknown military base.
