Somalia’s transitional government has ordered the closure of al-Jazeera’s Mogadishu office.

Government spokesperson Hussein Mohamed Muhamoud said “They have been ordered to cease operations because they violated the ethics of the media by misinforming about the reality in Somalia”. “They will be shut down by force if they disobey the order”.

Al-Jazeera opened its Mogadishu bureau in May 2006.
