Wednesday, November 24, 2010

KAMPALA, Uganda (UPI) -- Uganda is hosting a regional security meeting on Somalia's al-Shabaab militant group.

U.N. and top security chiefs from nine countries attended the two-day conference in Entebbe, The New Vision newspaper reported Wednesday.

Uganda's chief of military intelligence, Brig. Gen. James Mugira, said the conference's agenda included a study into links between militant groups and individuals in the region and the supply of arms, material and training for al-Shabaab.

He said, "The meeting will also discuss financial support to al-Shabaab and methods of financing operations" along with initiatives to combat the growth of al-Qaida influence through existing and new measures.

Another topic on the conference agenda is updating lists with possible new names for submission to the U.N. Security Council for inclusion on the U.N. proscription registry of individuals and organizations involved in terrorist activity.

The security chiefs will share additional information regarding individuals and entities already subjected to U.N. sanctions. Individuals and entities believed to be associated with al-Qaida or involved in threats to peace and security in Somalia will also be considered for possible addition to the sanctions list.
