ICC Note: Al-Shabaab is the largest terrorist group in Somalia. The Islamic terrorists seek to control the Somalian territory and establish a society based on their Sharia Law. They try to accomplish this by carrying out their jihad, which means persecuting Christians and any other group that they see as a threat to their cause.
