UNITED NATIONS, Oct 13 (Reuters) – U.N. investigators have
accused an advisor to Somalia’s president of involvement in the
unauthorized diversion of Somali government weapons to Islamist
militants with ties to al Qaeda, according to a confidential new
report seen by Reuters.
The accusation by the Somalia-Eritrea Monitoring Group, an
eight-member panel of independent experts that oversees
compliance with U.N. sanctions on the two countries, was
included in the group’s 482-page annual report to the U.N.
Security Council’s Somalia-Eritrea sanctions committee.
