Somalia: Al-Shabaab Blocking Food Deliveries

The Washington Post published on 27 May 2017 an article titled "In Somalia, Islamist Rebels Are Blocking Starving People from Getting Food" by Max Bearak.

Based on a visit to Somalia, the reporter concludes that al-Shabaab is blocking NGOs from delivering food to famine victims in areas controlled by al-Shabaab. At the same time, he quotes a UN security official who states that "al-Shabaab's biggest strength is that they are underestimated."
