Progress or Peril in Somalia? A Conversation with U.N. Special Representative for Somalia Nicholas Kay

The Special Representative of the U.N. Secretary-General for Somalia, Nicholas Kay, will discuss the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia’s progress in executing key governance and security goals. This event has been rescheduled from the original event date of March 12, 2014

Progress or Peril in Somalia?


At least four people were killed when a car bomb exploded outside a police station in a poor neighborhood of the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said.

Police officers had earlier stopped the saloon car at traffic lights and were taking the occupants for questioning when the bomb exploded. In a statement, the Ministry said “At least 4 people dead after a saloon exploded at Pangani police station. Two of them are police officers.” It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack.


A Somali Member of Parliament has been killed in what is known as a relatively safe part of Mogadishu. The MP’s vehicle exploded shortly after he left home. Another Member of Parliament, who was riding with the deceased, was injured in the blast.

Though no one has claimed responsibility for this attack, it is suspected to be an Al-Shabaab operation. The Al-qaeda linked group had vowed to fight the Somali administration.

The group’s suicide squad raided the presidential palace in February, killing soldiers and senior government officials. Though an intensified Amisom and Somali army offensive seem to be pushing the fighters in the frontlines, attacks such as this have been ongoing.
