In news from Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has been sworn in as Somalia’s next president after beating 35 other candidates in a long-overdue election. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud previously led Somalia from 2012 to 2017. Somalia is facing multiple crises, including a devastating drought and an armed insurgency led by the group al-Shabab. Earlier this month, al-Shabab fighters attacked an African Union base in Somalia, killing 10 soldiers from Burundi who were serving as part of an African Union peacekeeping team.
