Conflict between Somali Extremist Groups

The Associated Press published on 6 December 2018 an article titled "Bloody Rivalry Erupts between Al-Shabab, Islamic State Group in Somalia" by Abdi Guled.

The article reports a growing conflict between two extremist groups in Somalia: al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab and a group affiliated with the Islamic State that consists mainly of defectors from al-Shabaab. Both groups are competing for funding from local businesses by extorting money from them.
