- SOMALIA: The United States strongly backed efforts to disrupt the illegal financing methods used by Somalia’s al-Shabab extremist group, which raised more than the $21 million it spent last year on fighters, weapons and intelligence. It´s committed to partnering with other countries and using U.N. sanctions. Al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab remains the most active and resilient extremist group in Africa.
