The authorities in Somalia say they will confiscate the assets of businesses which give money to the militant Islamist group al-Shabab.

The jihadists are known to collect taxes in areas under their control and also extort protection money.

Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheyre has accused some companies of paying more taxes to al-Shabab than to the government.

Security Minister Mohamed Abukar Islow has also warned telecom and remittance companies that they risk being shut down if they provide services to the militant group.
