A Somali government delegation in Kismayu has accused Kenyan peacekeeping troops of not protecting them.
The Kenyan troops are members of the African Union Mission in Somalia, a regional peacekeeping mission operated by the African Union with the approval of the United Nations in Somalia.
Heightening tensions in another AMISOM operational area, Somali Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon stated that the government in conjunction with AMISOM troops, is undertaking house searches in Mogadishu.
Shirdon said the government will pursue all necessary measures to provide full security in the capital.
Somalia has been engulfed in civil war since 1991, following the collapse of the government of President Mohamed Siad Barre, former commander of the army who seized power in a coup.
Shirdon said the government would continue to battle terror groups, adding that the capital's security operation is being conducted by different government forces alongside those from the African Union Mission in Somalia.
The African Union's Peace and Security Council created AMISOM in January 2007 with an initial six-month mandate, which saw the U.N. Security Council approve the mission's mandate the following month.
