UN, new prime minister, new cabinet - new hope for Somalia?
Issued on: Modified:
In Somalia, the US military carried out a missile strike on Sunday against a suspected militant leader with ties to the al-Shebab group. The hardline Shebab have been weakened in recent years following operations by African Union forces, Amisom. Meanwhile, there have been numerous political developments in the country – a new cabinet has been approved in recent days and last month a new prime minister was appointed – the second in just over a year. So what does the UN make of this, as it tries to help the government rebuild the country after years of civil war? RFI speaks to Nicholas Kay, the UN Special Representative for Somalia, on the sidelines of the African Union summit in Addis Ababa.
