(Medeshi )- April 16,2012 - Nine Somalis deported from the US arrived at Mogadishu airport on Monday morning . They were immediately searched thoroughly by the security forces and put under investigation .
The Somali minister of Interior , Abdisamad Mualin told VOA Somali news that “ these people that have been returned from the US will be investigated for security reasons before they are released to the city “ . The minister continued that “the nine Somalis will be investigated for any criminal records or terrorist activities before they are released into the public“ .
The reason for the deportation by the US of these nine persons who are all male is not known. Many European countries have also recently declared that they will return to Somalia those that they don't want to stay in their countries.
Back ground : Since 1991, no central government has controlled Somalia , despite several attempts to establish a unified central government. The self-governing region of Puntland covers the northeast of the country. It declares itself to be autonomous, but not independent from Somalia. The Islamist Al-Shabaab controls a large part of the south of the country. Without a central government, Somalia's inhabitants subsequently reverted to local forms of conflict resolution, either civil, Islamic, or customary law.
The internationally recognized Transitional Federal Government controls only parts of the capital and some territory in the centre of the nation, but has re-established national institutions such as the Military of Somalia, and is working towards eventual national elections in August , 2012, when the interim government's mandate expires.
