WASHINGTON: The United States is considering the possibility of imposing sanctions on Somali individuals who spoil the progress in the political process, a senior US official said on condition of anonymity.

The official said in a statement that US State Department is mulling to impose travel restrictions on some Somali individuals who serve as spoilers in the political process.

He pointed out that the sanctions could include members of the Somali transitional government if they are found obstructing the institution-building in the country. (QNA)
