Speaking during a recent media engagement session in Mogadishu, Ambassador Madeira observed that though extensive progress has been made against Al Shabaab, more needs to be done to curtail its ability to spread terror.“We are going to concentrate on de-radicalization. We are going to sensitize the youths that they are being misled by these murderers; that joining these people is not a good idea and that these people stand for evil,” he said.Ambassador Madeira said the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) will try its best to provide education, shelter and food to the youth to prevent them from being recruited by Al Shabaab.He also spoke about the on-going efforts, undertaken together with the international community to bar supply of arms to terrorists and also cut their sources of funding.Last February, the heads of state from Troop Contributing Countries, meeting in Djibouti, urged the international community to cut financial links and punish financiers of Al Shabaab wherever they are.“We are working with the international community, to reduce the number of weapons that come, for instance, from Yemen into Somalia,” he added.Last March, in separate incidents, French and Australian navies, operating under Combined Maritime Forces, seized Somali-bound ships carrying large amounts of weapons believed to consignments for Al Shabaab.
