32 Children Rescued from al-Shabab in Somalia

A U.S.-backed operation by Somali special forces has freed 32 children who were kidnapped by militant group al-Shabab.

Somali Information Minister Abdirahman Omar Osman said Friday that Somali forces rescued the kids from a school in the Middle Shabelle region.

“The militants were indoctrinating the children, but now they are safe and are in the hands of the government,” he said in a phone interview with VOA’s Somali Service.
