Al-Shabab in Somalia bans three sided pastry! July 27, 2011

Al-Shabab, a powerful muslim extremist group, which controls roughly one third of the entire country, banned a three sided pastry because it may remind people of the Christian Holy Trinity.

Al-Shabab recently boarded trucks with loud speakers and announced that the popular pastry often filled with meat and vegetables was banned.  The ban comes at a time when the U.N. estimates that 11 million people are being affected by the worst drought in decades.

Somalia’s prolonged drought became a famine in part because the Somali government nor many aid agencies can fully operate in many areas controlled by Al-Qaeda linked militants, and the U.N. is set to declare all of southern Somalia a famine zone as of Aug. 1.
