SOMALIA’s prime minister has asked clan elders in Mogadishu to surrender Al-Qaeda suspects who are believed to be sheltering in the city after his forces, with Ethiopian military support, drove out Islamic militias which controlled the capital.

Washington has accused the Union of Islamic Courts, which threatened to overrun the government, of trying to turn the country into a safe haven for terrorists and demanded the handover of three suspects who it believes were behind the bombing of its embassies in east Africa.

Islamist leaders abandoned their city to the clans late on Wednesday night. Many of their militiamen simply melted away in the face of Ethiopian tanks and warplanes.

I guess I should not be surprised that it did not take to long for this to happen. As soon as the Islamist abandon rule of Mogadishu someone is asking for Al-Qaeda member to be turned over to them. If the information is correct and the men responsible for the embassy bombings are indeed in Mogadishu then I do hope they are found and taken into custody. The same men are also suspected in other acts of terror.
