The Interview

Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, Somali president

Somali troops backed by African Union forces have carried out a successful military campaign against al-Shabaab's strongholds in the country. But in recent days, the armed group has claimed responsibility for two explosions in Mogadishu, showing it still poses a threat to Somalia's security.
