claiming responsibility for the terrorist attack at a Kenyan mall presents a
threat not just to Africa, but to the entire world.
Kenyan authorities say dozens of people have died in the
Somali militant group al-Shabaab has claimed
Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud says reports that
some of the attackers may have been Somalis who lived in the US illustrate the
global nature of al-Shabaab.
Mohamud said after a Monday speech at Ohio State

to visit the country.

al-Shabab. He says maintaining security is his top priority as Somalia rebuilds
after decades of civil war and terrorist threats.
