Somalia’s al-Shabab militants issue internet ban

“Islamist militants in Somalia have issued a directive banning companies from providing internet services. The al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group has given firms 15 days to shut down mobile internet and fibre optic services, which are due to launch soon. Those who do not comply would be seen as ‘working with the enemy’ and dealt with according to Islamic law, it said.”
