Iran Possibly Backing Somali Islamists

The Houston Chronicle (credit for inserted photo) reports accusations by the Somali government that Iran, Egypt and Lybia are shipping arms to Somali Islamists.

Iran....aren't they backing Hamas, Hezbollah and Iraqi terrorists, too?
BAIDOA, Somalia — Somalia's prime minister charged Saturday that Egypt, Libya and Iran are arming the Islamic militants who challenge his rule, lengthening the list of countries accused of fueling this country's political chaos.
Reuters reported:
The shooting of Constitution and Federalism Minister Abdallah Deerow Isaq as he left Friday prayers in a Baidoa mosque triggered riots and heightened fears of a slide to all-out conflict in the violence-plagued Horn of Africa nation.
