Haway Hassan Aliyow, who was raped by Somali security forces, rests inside a makeshift shelter in southern Mogadishu on December 31, 2012. Haway Hassan Aliyow says she was raped in the Afgoye suburb as she travelled to Mogadishu from Bay region. Rape cases brought against Somali military forces have increased since Somali military forces with AMISOM defeated Al-Shabab islamist militants. Most rape cases have been reported in the lower Shabelle region and the accused have been primarily Somali military officers. The Shabab militant group are seizing women and girls as spoils of war, gang-raping and abusing them as part of its reign of terror in southern Somalia, according to victims, aid workers and United Nations officials.
