Somalia's al-Shabaab back on Twitter after suspension

Johannesburg, Sept. 11 (ANI): The Twitter account of Somali militant group al-Shabaab has been reportedly restored after it was suspended by the microblogging site for the second time this year.

The al-Qaeda linked extremists, who are fighting the internationally-backed government in Mogadishu, sent an email message confirming that @HSM_Press was their new English-language account.

Al-Shabaab welcomed followers and accused 'disbelievers' of wanting to extinguish 'Allah's Light with their mouths', News24 reports.

The group's account was suspended last week, following their claims of having ambushed the convoy of President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who was unhurt and the group posted that the next time he won't be as lucky.

Twitter's policy states that accounts can be suspended if users publish threats of violence and also if they use Twitter for unlawful purposes or illegal activities. (ANI)
