SOMALIA, Mogadishu: In a photograph taken and released 07 September 2013 by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team, a delegate reads the Koran ahead of the start of a National Conference on Tackling Extremism in Somalia in the country's capital Mogadishu. Somalia's Presdient Hassan Sheik Mohamud opened the government-organised conference which drew imminent Somali scholars, elders and imams from both within the country and internationally. Speaking at the event, and on the same morning that a double suicide attack by Al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group Al Shabaab killed 18 people and injured dozens more at a popular Mogadishu restaurant, President Hassan said that extremists no longer only attack government officials and foreign missions, but they also target traditional elders, religious scholars and innocent people gathered in public areas, restaurants and markets, and that the fight against extremism in Somalia is not just for the government or religious leaders to tackle, but for all Somali people to defeat.
