Al-Shabaab attacks Somalian African Union base

Mogadishu:  Somalian militant group Al Shabaab, on Friday, attacked an African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) military base in the country’s Lower Shebelle region.

“There are many casualties among the warring parties and this is the fiercest battle. Both sides are still fighting and we will know more later,” Sidi told Xinhua.

Al-Shabaab, which reportedly vowed to step up attacks on government bases during the holy month of Ramadan, later, claimed responsibility for the attack.

On Wednesday, at least 14 people were killed and five injured in a roadside car bomb explosion, targeting diplomats from the United Arab Emirates.
