Diplomats said Hassan Dahir Aweys has agreed to hold talks with the federal government about his fate but the government in Mogadishu decided to put him behind bars for his role in Alshabab.

Aweys was a founder of Islamic courts union and then decided to join Alshabab which has officially declared it’s allegiance to Al-qaida.

Hassan Dahir Aweys was added to the U.S. government's list of terrorists in 2001.

Somalia’s interior minister Abdikarim Hussein Guled ordered his arrest according to government sources.

“We are behind bars,they attacked and tortured us, The government has broken it’s promises”. Said Sheikh Yusuf Siyad Indha’ade a former warlord and assistant minister who was a member of a mediation team that was sent to Adado.
