Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked group has ordered telecom companies to shut down mobile internet services over fears the U.S. can use the data to target militants.The two affected mobile operators that offer 3G data service declined to comment.Al-Shabab said mobile internet services allowed the targeting of some fighters, an apparent reference to drone strikes or other military operations.In Somalia, many of al-Shabab's harsh social rules -- strict dress codes and rules on watching TV, for instance -- result in a lack of support from average Somalis.
