President calls for end to violence in Middle Shabelle

12/11/2013-(Mareeg.com) President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud today called on all parties to
refrain from violent activities in Middle Shabelle, southern Somalia.

Updating Somali citizens about the situation in the Middle Shabelle during a press
conference in Villa Somalia, the President said the Commander of the Somali National
Army intervened with his forces to stabilize the area affected by the recent
conflict. The Somali army also returned displaced citizens to their villages.

“They’re now safe and the immediate situation has been defused,”
said the President. “The Government of Somalia is convening a reconciliation
process, and so far elders and civil society are playing their role and are
assisting the government in resolving the issues. The fighting must stop. I call on
all parties to completely refrain from violence.

The President said AMISOM and the UN were supporting the government with the
necessary logistical support for which he extended his thanks and gratitude.
