Al Shabaab raids AU army base near Somali Capital

Heavily armed Al shabaab militants have attacked on Tuesday evening a military base in Arba’ow area manned by African Union forces helping Somali government restore stability.

Local residents said they could heard loud blasts, thought to be mortar rounds and heavy gunfire as Al shabaab tried to storm the AMISOM base in the area around Elasha Biyaha.

There was no immediate reports of casualties, as AMISOM were not immediately available for comment on the attack in Arba’ow, about 18Km Southwest of Mogadishu.

The latest reports from the area indicated that AMISOM forces repulsed the attack, and warded off Al shabaab fighters from the site.
