US sending weapons to Somalia

"The US has revealed it is sending weapons and cash to the Somali government to aid its fight against al Shabab."

"The US state department said on Thursday it was "concerned" about whether the government of Sharif Ahmed could be overwhelmed by fighters from the group."

"Washington was hoping to help "repel the onslaught of extremist forces which are intent on ... spoiling efforts to bring peace and stability to Somalia," Ian Kelly, a state department spokesman, said."
