Al Shabaab has warned residents in Somali capital, Mogadishu of obtaining Identity cards issued by the local government of Benadir region for new measures to curb the insecurity.

The spokesman of Al Shabaab Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rageh (Sheikh Ali Dheere) threatened residents with harsh punishment for taking the national IDs from the federal government.
