Britain exporting jihad. “Somalia terror ‘funded in Britain,'” from the Press Association, :
The Foreign Office is investigating reports of British casualties in US air strikes on al Qaida suspects in Somalia.
The attacks came amid claims that support for the Islamic militant movement had come from the UK….
Ethiopia’s prime minister has said that many international terrorists had been killed, injured or captured in the fighting – including Britons.
“Notwithstanding the motives for this reported military action,” Ban’s spokeswoman Michele Montas said, “the secretary general is concerned about the new dimension this kind of action could introduce to the conflict and the possible escalation of hostilities that may result.”
Somalia’s deputy prime minister has claimed that much of the funding for the Islamist militants was coming from Britain and that some of their fighters were British and American passport holders.
There was also condemnation from British-based Islamic groups of the US intervention in the conflict.
