Ahmed was born in the town of Galkacyo, in the Mudug Region.He is now the transitional President of Somalia, elected by a session of the transitional Parliament held in neighbouring Kenya's capital, Nairobi, on October 10, 2004, and sworn in on October 14, 2004.He has been living in the Kenyan capital since his election.The election took place in Kenya because the Somali capital was regarded as being too dangerous.Ahmed is from the Majeerteen subclan of the Darod clan.[1]
He is a decorated war hero and fought for Somalia in the 1964 and 1977-1978 wars.He also played a key role in the creation of the powerful Puntland state, which covers one third of Somalia.
The U.S. Department of State, in its 2002 Country Report on Human Rights Practices, identifies milita members loyal to Ahmed as being responsible for at least two deliberate killings of non-combatants while he was president of the disputed regional state of Puntland:
On January 11, 2002, Garah Mohammed Said Gom'ad, a prominent businessman, was reportedly killed by forces of Yusuf Ahmed in a deliberate attack in which Yusuf's militia reportedly stopped his car and Gom'ad was fatally shot. On August 17 2002, Sultan Ahmed Mohammed Hurre, a British citizen, was killed by bodyguards in the employ of Yusuf Ahmed as their respective convoys passed each other approximately two miles south of the Puntland town of Garowe.Hurre was known for opposing the extension of Ahmed's presidency in the state of Puntland,[3]; according to the press reports, he was targeted by Ahmed for arrest as a religious extremist.Ahmed later claimed that the killing was accidental, but witnesses claimed otherwise.
