IDPs from Qoryoley reach Marka


Hundreds of internally displaced persons from Qoryooley have reached the capital of lower Shabelle, Marka.

The IDPs have been displaced by the ongoing fighting between Al-Shabaab militant group and the Somali National Army and AMISOM troops.

Some of IDPs who spoke to Bar-Kulan have said they are farmers who used to depend on the activity before being displaced by the heavy fighting.

Al-Shabaab militant group lost Qoryooley to SNA and AMISOM mid March.
