An investigation for Channel 4 News UK, to be broadcast tonight, also reveals that a suicide bomber who grew up in Ealing is thought to have blown himself up in an attack in Somalia that killed more than 20 soldiers. The incident is the first reported case involving a Somali based in Britain and will add to pressure on Scotland Yard and the home office to tackle the problem within the Somali community, which, at about 250,000 people, is the biggest in Europe.
See my, (Bill Warner), prior post, Wednesday, January 28, 2009, Columbian Newspaper Ignores Fact That US Govt Orders Al-Shabaab Website Shut Down In Vancouver WA, Same Day Americans Arrested in Somalia. After 12 months of complaining about the Al-Shabaab terror recruiting website hosted in Vancouver WA and the Columbian Newspaper ignoring the fact and defending the terror groups right to "free speech", Al-Shabaab website was finally shut down on Jan 29th, 2009, too late though to stop all the "trainees" recruited during 2008 from Minnesota and London and now back in the USA and the UK, way to go ass-clowns at the Columbian Newspaper !

The Ethiopians withdrew last month as part of a peace deal agreed between the government and moderate Islamists, leaving African Union peacekeepers and Somali soldiers - although many believe that they will not be able to keep advancing extremists at bay.
