Somalia security officers have nabbed more than 100 suspected militants in an operation that took place in the capital and its environs.

Security Ministry spokesman Mohamed Yusuf said the security forces, in collaboration with AMISOM forces, raided several houses in Mogadishu to flush out Al-Shabaab suspects.

Yusuf said the operation was well-orchestrated and came after a tip-off from members of the public.

He noted that the exercise was meant to beef up the security in the capital which has been experiencing terror attacks in the recent past.
