Al kaeda terrorists in Zoomalia pillaged £480,000 worth of British aid in raid on contractors delivering humanitarian supplies

Al kaeda militants pillaged British taxpayer-funded aid worth almost £500,000, the Department for International Development has admitted
The Government said that a Zoomali-based cell of al kaeda, known as al-shabaab, plundered the vital humanitarian aid and equipment from approved contractors
The loss was hidden in the small print of a recent set of Department for International Development (DfID) accounts which revealed ‘the theft’ of supplies worth £480,000 between November 2011 and February 2012
It is understood that the supplies were stolen or destroyed in November 2011 when al-shabaab went on the rampage through an area where some of DFiD’s local partners had a warehouse
