Terrorist organization

Also known as:
Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahidin

This was the militant wing of the Somali Council of Islamic Courts that took over most of southern Somalia in 2006.

According to the U.S. government, most of its fighters work against the Somali government and do not support global jihad.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for suicide bombings in Kampala, Uganda, in 2010 that killed more than 70 people, and the 2013 attack in Mogadishu on a United Nations compound, which killed 22 people.

According to a 2015 report from the United Nations, the group uses rape and other sexual violence as a strategy in armed conflict.
