Somalia’s government has released a circular banning importation of toy pistol, guns and bombs on Eid days.

The circular warned businesses importing the toys could have wider implications for the country, possibly motivating the children to engage in violent acts themselves.

Businesses should rather import other goods which will help the children learn over the period, it said.
