Somalia’s President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has said that the country’s army destroyed the radical Al-Shabaab group.
Mr. Mohamud stressed that the elderly were quite successful in reaching out to young men persuading them not to join extremists.
Backed by the African Union forces, the government of Somalia has been trying to win control of the country gripped by a 20-year-long civil war.
Hassan Sheikh Mohamud assumed office in September, 2012.
