Four Gov’t soldiers killed in ambush near Diinsoor city

At least four Somali military soldiers are reported to have been killed in an Al shabaab ambush attack near the southern town of Diinsoor in Baay region on Saturday.

Confirming the incident, a local government official said the soldiers died in a surprise assault on army convoy travelling outside the town which once served as an Al shabaab bastion.

The attack sparked a fierce gunfight between Al shabaab attackers and the federal government forces who have exchanged heavy and small weapons during the clashes.

Al shabaab has been pushed out of most of the major towns in Baay region, but the militants still are in control of the rural areas, and continue to launch attacks on SNA and AMISOM.
