Armed Al-Shabaab fighters patrol Bakara Market, in Mogadishu, Somalia, Monday, June 29, 2009. Somali radical Islamic insurgent says weapons and ammunition the United States recently supplied to Somalia’s embattled government will only increase violence in the war-wracked country. Sheik Hassan Ya’qub, a spokesman for the militant group al-Shabab in the port town of Kismayo, was responding to an announcement by U.S. officials last week that the Obama administration had supplied arms and provided military training worth just under $10 million to the shaky official government.
