A group that has claimed responsibility for recent attacks in the Somali capital Mogadishu Monday warned it would shoot down planes using Mogadishu International Airport.
“They have to know that the resistance will shoot down planes that use Mogadishu airport. All the necessary equipment for carrying out this operation is in our hands,” according to the statement by the Popular Resistance Movement in the Land of the Two Migrations.
The statement was dated Sunday and posted on the Islamic courts’ Web site.
