Somali insurgents ban BBC radio service

Nairobi/Mogadishu – Somalia’s Islamist insurgent group al-Shabaab has banned the BBC and shut down radio transmitters used to broadcast its Somali-language service, the British broadcaster said Saturday.
Al-Shabaab controls much of south and central Somalia and is waging a bloody insurgency against the weak Western-backed government.
The insurgents accused the BBC of supporting the transitional federal government and opposing Islam.
The head of BBC Africa, Jerry Timmins, said that the broadcaster was completely impartial and gave all sides, including al-Shabaab, the chance to comment.
Al-Shabaab also targeted the Voice of America, saying that any organization transmitting the BBC or VoA should cancel their contracts.
Over 20,000 have died in the insurgency, which kicked off in early 2007 after Ethiopia invaded and ousted the Islamist regime in charge at the time.
Somalia has been embroiled in chaos since the 1991 ouster of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.

THE BBC GETTING THE BOOT EVERYWHERE
