SOMALIA: ATMIS Lockdown to jeopardize swears in of new lawmakers

MOGADISHU (SD) – A statement from the African Union Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) said that a curfew has been imposed at the Halane camp near Aden Adde International Airport, which houses Western ambassadors and diplomats.

The curfew imposed on Halane camp will last from 10-16 April, and the reason for the curfew is said to be related to security operations.

The statement from the ATMIS mission was shared with UN agencies, international diplomats, NGOs, contractors in Halane camp as well as the Somali federal government.

The ban is likely to affect the government’s plan to sworn in new Parliamentarians on April 14th.

The curfew comes at a time when Al Shabaab militants have recently attacked a part of Halane camp, particularly Aficiooni, killing at least 10 people, including foreigners.
