I hope they destroy al shabab also unite the country.

Somalia has lots of problems hopefully they solve them.

All the best for them.

Turned out to be false newss, exaggerated.
I looked up the news too, but the number of officer cadets brawling sounded pretty insane 300 or so, as I recall it.

if you can provice source counter in please share.

edit: Abdulkadir Muhammed Nur became the "Minister of Justice" in Somalia who is studied with a Turkish scholarship. Mr. Nur thanked Turkey and Turkish people, for touching the lives of thousands of foreign students with these Scholarships.

Also in an interview with AA: "There is moral basis for the relationship between our two countries. Turkey's place in Somalia, never a political place," he said. The achievements of Mr. Nur, who has a bright academic background and who knows and feels Turkish culture closely, will have active role in the shaping future of relations between the two brotherly countries.

I hope things go better for the Turks in Somalia. It did not go well for Pak Army as part of the US led UNOSOM back in 1992. The whole debacle was highlighted by the movie Black Hawk Down ~ PA tanks and APCs saved US Rangers from being toasted but in that movie they only got one scene mention. Typical Hollywood.

It is a little known fact but number of Turkish Special Forces Command personnel were awarded honor medals because of their successful activities in Somalia in Operation Gothic Serrpent and their efforts after the Black Hawk down event. It is being said that they worked with the US Rangers and Delta Force in 1993 according to the source but there are no details present.
